Harold Fry is an unremarkable man, living quietly in a seaside town in south Devon with his wife Maureen. Out of the blue, Harold receives a letter from Berwick-upon-Tweed from his former work colleague, Queenie. “She’s in a hospice. She’s just saying goodbye,” he sombrely narrates to his wife. He pens a few simple, heartfelt words but the handwritten scrawl feels inappropriate. Harold spontaneously embarks on a physically gruelling 500-mile trek north to see Queenie in person.
