For thirty years Edie (Sheila Hancock) has nursed her controlling, difficult husband George following a stroke. Then he dies, leaving her lost and directionless. At 83, she feels she will die with all her regrets intact.  One regret haunts her most. Many years ago, her father wanted to take her to the Scottish Highlands to climb Mt Suilven.  However, George prevented her from going. Now Edie somehow musters the courage to leave her unsupportive daughter to undertake the arduous hike. Described as ‘a triumph of risk-taking over regret and resolution over resignation’, this British film will resonate with many viewers. The stunning Highlands landscapes and the heart-warming connection between Edie and her young guide Jonny add to the film’s charm.
