Synopsis

Maurice and Ian are old friends, veteran English actors who never quite hit the bigtime. Now in their seventies, they continue to work (Maurice, for example, is playing a corpse in a television drama) but spend much of their time discussing their ailments over breakfast in a favourite café. When Ian's great-niece Jessie arrives from the provinces, she quickly tries her great-uncle's patience. But Maurice is taken with the girl, and proceeds to show her the cultural sights of the capital. Maurice tries to teach Jessie something about life, but in the process he is surprised to discover how very little he actually knows now that his own life is drawing to a close.
