    • Synopsis
    • A timid man discovers his younger brother is being abused in a care home. He sets off across country in a stolen minibus on a desperate and unorganised mission of mercy.
      On the way he must learn to take control of his own decisions and that his life is his responsibility, no one else’s. Travelling with him are two friends; a violent, disturbed man who must learn to stop blaming others for his misfortunes and a young girl with low self-esteem who must learn to love herself for who she is.
      They become united to save the brother as, like him, they all have learning difficulties.
      The film will be created by layering improvisation upon a solid narrative structure.
      It will feature experienced actors who have a range of learning difficulties.
