Movie synopsis:

The film tells the story of Malcolm, a middle-aged, divorced car salesman from London, in mourning at his best friend’s unexpected passing, who travels to a legendary Appalachian folk festival they’d always planned to visit together. Finding a city in transition, he’s challenged to overcome his outdated preconceptions about race and gender, and is forced to confront his own mortality and the choices he’s made, while trying to have the trip of a lifetime and do his old friend proud.
