Hector

Drama. A homeless man makes his journey from Glasgow to London in search of friendship and warmth at Christmas.

Every year, homeless Hector McAdam makes his journey from Glasgow to London in search of friendship and warmth at Christmas. Having lived on the sidelines for years, surviving the realities of homelessness by frequenting service stations the length and breadth of the UK, Hector makes his way to his temporary home of a shelter in London, where he can forget his dire situation for a day.

However, this year, he decides not only to visit his Christmas family but also to seek out the family he left behind 15 years ago. Faced with an uncertain future and wanting to settle his tumultuous past, Hector finds himself faced with the joys and disappointment of stepping back into society with one thing certain - this Christmas will be one that he will always remember.
