The Last Bus

by Gillies MacKinnon Gala Premieres

After the death of his beloved wife, retiree Tom decides to set out on a long journey. Carrying the ashes of the deceased in a small suitcase, he sets off from the northernmost point of Scotland to Land’s End in the south of England – the place where they first met. Tom makes the entire journey on public busses where he meets so many different people who share his story that he soon becomes a national celebrity. The road movie THE LAST BUS tells the heart-warming story of an ambitious man who embarks on a nostalgic journey, yet experiences many new and enriching encounters along the way. The perfect stage for legendary British character actor Timothy Spall.
