Childhood sweethearts Alan (Derek Jacobi) and Celia (Anne Reid), both widowed and in their 70s, fall for each other all over again when they are reunited on the internet after nearly 60 years. Their relationship is a celebratory tale of the power of love at any age.

But this is also a story about family, and with family comes baggage. Celia's respectable, head teacher daughter Caroline (Sarah Lancashire) is juggling bringing up two boys and dealing with her husband's infidelity, while Alan's rebellious, complicated middle-aged daughter Gillian (Nicola Walker) struggles to make a living on a beautiful but bleak farm. How will these two very different women cope with their parents' announcement that they've decided to get married?
