longer restricted to zone three of the local buses,
The real-life story of a shy and awkward father who desperately wanted the family car to make him a better parent.
The film is based upon the family folklore and memories of his children. After his death they realise that their first and only family car, once a luxurious chariot to endless holidays in paradise, had gradually become a painful vehicle of his affection.
Their dad's struggle to be a loving parent had turned into a battle against rust.
This vivid family history uses innovative, atmospheric computer animation and treated album photographs, with Bill Paterson in live-action as the father.
