We’re delighted to bring this brand new release from British director Richard Heap. After the death of their father, three runaway children and their two donkeys embark on a journey across the North York Moors, in a search for their estranged mother. Funny and heartfelt, and with the beauty of a classic family adventure film and harnessing a modern aesthetic, be prepared for an emotional journey into what it means to be siblings. A tale that includes donkeys, trains, joy, heartache and some of the best landscapes northern England has to offer.
