Up until his eighty sixth birthday, Roy Crumpton could have been described as the most ordinary of people. A man quite content with easy chairs and comfortable trousers. But eighty-six years of loneliness is a long time. An epiphany in his greenhouse sets into motion a chain of extraordinary and unlikely events, wherein we see that when one loses their heart, they often lose their head at the same time. Roy comes to realise that throwing yourself into the wind of fate is the best way to be blown in the right direction. In a journey that sees him tackle the postal service, reluctant companionship, the high seas and the most remote island in the world, despite the odds, he is finally blessed with the good fortune denied him for so many years.

It seeks to remind us that it is never to late to set out on an adventure, especially when love is perhaps the greatest adventure of them all.
