Synopsis

Present day. Sarah McGuire, a travelling sales woman is off on a trip up north to sell her boss's latest range of lingerie stock. Unhappy in her current relationship with a car mechanic, she sets off with a mind to change her life for the better. She is good at her job but is unfulfilled. To alleviate her daily boredom she runs to orchestral music. Running is her one real pleasure in life.

A chance meeting in a pub while drunk furnishes her with a list of ten beautiful places to go running in Britain. Initially, the places are on route between her sales assignments, but finally Sarah has to make the decision to get off the beaten track and go on the run.

No longer in conflict with her true self and her job, Sarah follows the list and one by one ticks off the places to run until she finds herself in the very north of Scotland wondering why she is there at all.

Set across England, Wales and Scotland, Back Burner is a road movie that takes the lead character from London to far north.
