★★★★ "One thing you can't take away from this film is its power to inspire you to have your own adventure." - Switch. 

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.

“A wonderfully crafted tale of a Rolls-Royce road trip through India, with an eccentric character and a loving relationship at its core.” – InDaily Adelaide

“Eccentric and adventurous.” - Docpoint Helsinki
“Redefines expedition film-making.” - Ray Mears, BBC
“A uniquely inspired expedition that redefines later life. Living proof you can live your dreams no matter how odd, wild or crazy they might be.” - Edmonton International Film Festival 
“Philosophically evocative.” - Edmonton Journal
“Reminds us how important it is to have the support of a love one at all times.” - Sky Arte
