Meet Rupert and Jan Grey, a free-spirited upper-class English couple in their sixties, married for 35 years and on the verge of retirement. Not content to live out their autumn years by the fire, they ignore everyone’s advice and embark on a remarkable journey – to drive their 1936 Rolls Royce across India on their way to a human rights festival in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Over six months and some 5000 miles, they fall into company with tea-wallahs and maharajahs, dodge tribal conflicts, negotiate with border officials and make constant mechanical repairs. With its mix of road-movie, biopic, travelogue and madcap adventure, ROMANTIC ROAD is at once a unique expedition, a love story 35 years in the making and a reminder to never stop embracing the possibilities of life.

“Couldn’t find a more philosophically evocative film than Romantic Road.” - Edmonton Journal
