Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In this saga of family stress and antagonisms, an 80-year-old grandfather is brought out of his retirement home to celebrate his birthday with his family in their nearly 100-year-old country house and farm. Unknown to the grandfather, his son Geoffrey has made the decision to sell everything because it has become nearly impossible to make a living off the land. Family members range from Uncle Edward (Norman Kaye) a tippling priest, to Geoffrey's daughter Clare (Alyson Best) and some siblings and friends who are at least partially dysfunctional. With this group along to celebrate his birthday, the grandfather may want to make it back to the peace and quiet of his retirement home as quickly as he can.
