Arthur's Dyke

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

A funny, poignant, thought-provoking story of four very different characters who set out on the longest walk of their lives and discover their true selves.



Arthur, Geoffrey and Andy first walked the 177 miles of Offa's Dyke twenty years ago when they were studying law together at university. They vowed to repeat the walk, but this time the motley crew are joined by a stranger - a forty year old wife and mother in the throes of a mid-life crisis who throws more than one spanner in the works.



As the miles pass in a haze of pouring rain, screaming rows, hilarious encounters and dodgy B&B's, our intrepid travellers discover hidden depths, long-buried antagonism and secret passions...and an unlikely friendship.
