"Sanity and madness have played on my mind almost my entire life. But when I tell stories I desire to bring something more than darkness - I want to bring humour, kindness, connection, hope and light: the possibility of something to make us all carry on." Carol Morley

From acclaimed British filmmaker Carol Morley, this dark and funny exploration of the growing friendship between two women as they hit the road is filled with adventure, humour and compassion. The film puts forgotten artist Audrey Amiss on the map. Inspired by her extensive archive of diaries, letters and art, the film weaves real events into an imagined journey as Audrey goes on a road trip with her psychiatric nurse. Deciding that she must have an exhibition of her art before it is too late, Amiss persuades her nurse, Sandra, to drive her from London to a gallery in her birthplace in Sunderland. Opting to not take the motorway, the two decide to take the long way round - trundling in Sandra's electric car on B-roads to their destination. But with so many deviations along the way, will they ever even make it?
