SYNOPSIS

Life for the unassuming John May (Eddie Marsan) has always revolved around his work for the local council in South London, finding the next of kin of those who have died alone.

Profoundly dedicated to his work, he believes that everyone deserves a dignified exit, and writes eulogies and organizes funerals for those who wouldn't have them otherwise. But when a new case – an elderly alcoholic in a flat directly opposite his own – hits him harder than usual, he journeys outside London to track down the man's long-abandoned daughter (Joanne Froggatt).

Against the odds, the two lonely souls are drawn to each other – and John's outlook starts to open to life's possibilities.
