A warm, deeply moving story about old age.

When the geriatric ward in a small Yorkshire hospital is threatened with closure, the staff and patients decide to fight back by galvanizing the local community. They invite a news crew to film their preparations for a concert in honour of the hospital’s most distinguished nurse. What could go wrong?

This film celebrates the spirit of the elderly patients whilst paying tribute to the deep humanity of the medical staff battling with limited resources and ever-growing demand. With Derek Jacobi (Ambrose), David Bradley (Joe Colman), Bally Gill (Dr Valentine) Jessica Baglow (Dr Jess),  Dame Judi Dench (Mary Moss) and Jennifer Saunders (Sister Gilpin).

This heart-warming hospital set drama is filled with kindness and care and is a stage play adaptation from the pens of English National Treasure, Alan Bennett (The Madness of King George, The Lady In The Van) and Heidi Thomas, the award winning creator of Call The Midwife, Cranford, and Upstairs Downstairs.
