Mim (Miriam Margolyes) is an eccentric free spirit who believes 70 is the new 40. Fran (Frog Stone) is a reserved high school history teacher in a rut. They are also mother and daughter, and their relationship is not exactly easy. But when Mim reveals she is dying and wants to go on a trip to fulfil items on her bucket list, Fran feels that she has no choice but to come along for the ride.
Fran and Mim have to try to come to terms with their past and their future as they tick off items on Mim’s preposterous list, one by one.
The 4 part series starts on Thursday 13th April at 10PM on BBC4 - an Easter treat! - and will of course be available on iPlayer.
