Meet Rupert and Jan Grey, a free-spirited and eccentric upper-class English couple in their sixties, married for 35 years and on the verge of retirement.

At a time when most couples are preparing for a simple life, this intrepid pair ignore everyone’s advice and embark on a remarkable journey - to drive Rupert’s father’s 1936 Rolls Royce across India on their way to a photography festival in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Over six months and some 5000 miles they fall into company with tea-wallah and maharajahs, dodge tribal conflicts, negotiate with border officials and make constant mechanical repairs. 

Oliver McGarvey’s remarkable new documentary is at once a rare glimpse into a unique expedition, a study of a love story 35 years in the making and a reminder to never stop embracing the possibilities of life.
