After their home life is turned upside down three children and the family's donkeys escape across the backbone of Northern England, confronting both the harsh landscapes and what it means to be siblings. A throwback to classic children's adventure films but with a modern aesthetic.

Touching, heartbreaking Brit indie film shot in Yorkshire in towns like Whitby
Saw this little Brit indie gem of a film in Halifax in West Yorkshire on a wet Sunday afternoon; didn't know much about it before hand but so glad went to see it. The director Richard Heap and two of the teen actors did a Q&A afterwards. The story opens in Whitby where the trio of kids are being raised ad hoc by their loving but heavy drinking Dad (played by Mark Addy) and after a family tragedy and the return of their violent uncle the kids flee with 2 of the donkeys from their seaside day job onto the North Yorkshire moors escaping and on the run. The story follows their adventures and charts their emotional as well as physical journey. It is touching, heartbreaking, witty, insightful and packs a big emotional wallop. Catch it if you can.
