Exclusive: Tale of homeless man trying to reconnect with his estranged family is shooting now.
Udi has picked up international sales on Hector, starring Peter Mullan as a long-term homeless man who attempts to reconnect with his past life.
The working-titled picture is the first feature for photographer Jake Gavin.
The heart-warming tale follows a homeless man who decides to seek out his old life after years of wandering aimlessly.
It follows Mullan’s character over the course of a wintery fortnight as he heads south from Scotland to a temporary Christmas shelter in London and finally an emotional reunion with his long-lost family.
Shooting started earlier this week on location in Glasgow and will continue in London via Liverpool. The picture is scheduled for an autumn delivery.
