The Last Bus (12A)

The heart-warming tale of pensioner Tom, who embarks on a journey to take his late wife’s ashes from John O’Groats to Land’s End—using only local buses.

John O’Groats, Scotland: an elderly man, Tom (Timothy Spall), whose wife has just passed away, sets out to carry her ashes across the UK to Land’s End, where they originally met. He makes the journey using only local buses and his free bus pass. Unbeknownst to Tom, his mission captures the imagination of the local people he meets and, ultimately, becomes a nationwide story.
