A respected but ageing actor spends his time between jobs meeting up with his friends Ian and Donald for tea and gossip in the local café. However, his life changes when Ian’s family land him with his grand-niece Jessie, ostensibly as Ian’s carer but in fact to distance her from a family crisis of her making. Maurice falls for her and takes her under his wing but what begins as a mismatched relationship, ends in a warm friendship.
