"I don't even have a photo. Every girl I see could be her. You'd know yer own child if they walked past, wouldn't you? "
Sixty Five Miles. The distance between Hull and Sheffield. The distance between a man and the daughter he's never met. Pete and Rich are two very different brothers. Reunited after nine years, both are seeking forgiveness. Rich needs to confront ex girlfriend, Lucy, and the shadows of his recent past...
Pete's search is for the one woman in his life he's never known and never knowingly hurt, his daughter. As they each embark on a journey of forgiveness, they soon discover that - even separated by sixty five miles - people never forget.
With echoes of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman, this is the world premiere of Matt Hartley's electrifying and moving drama about families and the ties that bind.
