When Ellie (Hayley Atwell)'s sister Kate (Orla Brady) gives her a job at Woodlane, the residential home she works at herself, Ellie has trouble getting with the program and neglects aspects of her responsibilities.

Ellie quickly finds warmth in her conversations with a resident named Alice (Joan O'Hara), who she takes down by the river to help her feel better. The next day Ellie discovers Alice has died. Most of the residents travel to be with their families over Christmas. The only people left  are the four hardcore residents of the home; Georgia (Vanessa Redgrave) a former actress and singer, The Nightingale sisters Heather (Brenda Fricker) and Hazel (Imelda Staunton), and Donald Vatson (Joss Ackland) a recovering alcoholic who used to be a judge and spends his nights playing the piano.
