Colm Meaney (Hell On Wheels), Kate Ashfield (Shaun Of The Dead) and newcomer Hannah Chinn star in the feature about a successful author named Jonathan Stack (Meaney), who has been so obsessed with trying to pen his magnum opus that he’s let his marriage to Samantha (Ashfield), who is also his agent and editor, break down to the point where she announces she’s leaving him for her business partner.

Devastated, he abandons the elegant family home in leafy Stratford Upon Avon and drives his ancient Jaguar to the family villa in Portugal where their young daughter Hope (Chinn) and her half-sister Amelia (Brenda Meaney) try to help sort things out.

Production companies are Stratford Upon Avon-based Bad Penny Productions, Yorkshire-based Eagle Film Productions and Monte Productions in Portugal.

1950s motorsport was fast, furious, fun – and lethal. It was an era when drivers wore helmets made of cork and leather, tyres were something
that stopped the bodywork dragging on the ground and belts were used to hold your trousers up. An era where death was expected around every corner and accepted as an occupational hazard.

Enter a band of intrepid women drivers who took on the male dominated motorsport elite – and won.

This is the story of Pat Moss and Ann Wisdom. From the glamour of Monte Carlo to the peaks of The Alpine Rally, Pat Moss and Ann Wisdom triumphed time and time again wrestling with cars like the brutish Austin Healy 3000 to the humble Mini.

There were many endurance events like Le Mans and The Mille Miglia but the roughest and toughest of them all was a four-day charge across Europe, the gruelling Liege – Rome – Liege Rally.

Moss and Wisdom achieved many successes in rallying including the first ever win for the Mini but their victory in The Liege – Rome – Liege is still considered to be one of the greatest ever in the history of motor sport.
