Alan (Bill Nighy) is a retired tailor - and Scrabble expert - whose decades long quest to track down his missing son has bred a certain degree of resentment from his other son Peter (Sam Riley). While staying with Peter and his family, Alan encounters a Scrabble player online who plays a fateful word - a word that caused their terrible argument the last time he saw his missing boy. Writer Frank Cottrell Boyce (24 Hour Party People, The Railway Man) penned the delightfully literate and offbeat script for this kind-hearted and elegant comedy-drama - in which grief and triple word scores go hand in hand.
