irrepressible Mim celebrates turning 70 by writing a
bucket list. Item one: dragging daughter Fran on the "mini
break they never had".
The mother and daughter spend a
tense weekend at Miniworld, a dated theme-park which Fran had been
desperate to visit 30 years ago. When Fran tries to leave, Mim reveals
she's dying. Fran tries to make the effort, but new starts and openness
are easier said than done.
Mim is an eccentric free spirit
who believes 70 is the new 40. Fran (Frog Stone) is a reserved high
school history teacher in a rut. They are also mother and daughter, and
their relationship is not exactly easy. When Mim reveals she is dying
and wants to go on a trip to fulfil items on her bucket list, Fran feels
that she has no choice but to come along for the ride. Fran and Mim
have to try to come to terms with their past and their future as they
tick off items on Mim's preposterous list, one by one.
Reserved history teacher Fran has long had a strained relationship with her eccentric, free-spirit mother Mim. When Mim announces that she is dying Fran feels obliged to accompany her on a road trip ticking off items on her bucket list.
