Meet Edith Moore (Sheila Hancock), an elderly woman who in the aftermath of the death of her controlling husband decides to fulfil a life-long dream and overcome a lifetime of bitterness and resentment.

At the tender age of eighty-three, Edie sets out to try and capture a little of the magic she had as a young girl by climbing a Scottish mountain. Against her daughter's wishes, she heads to Scotland and employs Jonny (Kevin Guthrie) to help her prepare for the gruelling climb ahead – which sparks an unusual friendship.

The story is a tale of triumph over adversity as Edie embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, set against the stunning backdrop of the Scottish Highlands.
