500 Miles North

To claim a huge inheritance, two estranged brothers must travel to the wilds of Scotland in an old camper van to spread their father’s ashes. James and John haven’t spoken in ten years; John is now a thrusting executive with a wandering eye, James, a lonely, socially maladjusted, alcoholic. It’s only the sudden death of the father who rejected them as children, that draws them back together. Despite their bitter dislike of each other stemming from an old disagreement, they set off on the trip, forced by the eccentric will to re-enact the last happy family holiday they ever had. They career up the country in a malfunctioning camper van, accompanied by their father’s ashes in an urn, and his letters of instruction, performing strange tasks, and meeting a host of curious characters on the way. Their father’s letters and the people they meet, start to heal old wounds, helping them come to terms with the pains of both past and present, but there is a secret waiting five hundred miles north in the highlands that could shatter them forever.
