After being married for many years, Tom and Joan’s relationship is given an unexpected jolt by Joan’s breast cancer diagnosis. The course of her therapy shines a light on their devotion as they face the challenges that lie ahead and the prospect the treatment being unsuccessful. Flawless performances from Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson permeate this intimate and deeply moving portrait of a marriage.

'There’s nothing ordinary about this deeply moving, frequently funny and piercingly insightful drama…a story of everyday love between two people living in the shadow of grief, facing an uncertain future, both together and apart.’ ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Guardian
