Ever since Hector’s comfortable family life was uprooted several years ago he has been living on the side of motorways in Scotland, relying on service stations for food, shelter and washing facilities – as well as a space to shut himself away from the world. The film follows his annual pilgrimage to a Christmas shelter in London where he finds safety, and friendship. Gradually over the course of his journey, Hector learns to reconnect with life and engage with aspects of the past he had once tried to move away from. This is a stark, honestly presented and beautiful film about the realities of homelessness that challenges preconceptions, celebrates community spirit and manages to retain a sense of humour.
This adaptation of John Steinbeck's classic novel centres on a farming family's journey of hardship to California in the Great Depression.
