    • Synopsis
    • Hector McAdam is embarking on his annual journey from Scotland to a warm refuge in London, where comrades, Christmas cheer and a turkey dinner await him. But, aware this might be his last epic journey, Hector opts for some paths not taken in years to reconnect with his past and reunite with those he left behind.

      Life without a home isn’t easy but Hector is resilient, accepting of people, and life, as they come. He meets with friendship and kindness, disappointment and cruelty, discomfort and joy.

      His cross country odyssey brings chance encounters, companions old and new who need his support as much as he needs theirs, and stirs up memories, resentments, regrets and fresh hope for the future.
