Description: When one of a group of lifelong friends dies, his buddies are left to carry out his last wishes: to take his ashes and dispose of them off the pier in the seaside town of Margate. As their sentimental journey begins and their own emotional mysteries unfold, they try to come to terms with Jack's death by reliving their lives with him. Flashbacks of the group's younger days shed light on their relationships, providing insights into their long-buried secrets. Meanwhile, with the lads speeding across the Kent countryside in a shiny Mercedes, Jack's wife undertakes her own very significant journey. As the pilgrimage turns into a pub-crawl the men discover that through it all, it's your friends who break your heart - and your friends who mend it. Tears are replaced by laughter and then just as quickly followed by more poignant memories.
