Christopher William Hill's drama about driving lessons and friendships. Starring Samantha Spiro, Bill Paterson and Alison Steadman.
Christopher William Hill's new comedy drama is about driving lessons, dominant mothers and unexpected friendships.
Nat, a harassed middle-aged teacher, who sees her life rapidly drifting away from her, is desperate to pass her driving test on the anniversary of her father's death. It is his money that has helped pay for her instruction.
Ken, her much older driving instructor, has understandable doubts about his pupil's chances. But he also finds himself increasingly drawn to his client. Their unlikely friendship develops over the course of Nat's final week before her test - despite, or perhaps because of, the distractions provided by Sam's needy and larger-than-life mother.
