Robert is just about to celebrate his 70th birthday, but there is someone missing from his life, and her absence makes the day ahead stretch out before him.

Miriam, Robert’s daughter, is a busy working mum who worries about her daughter Sinead getting to school on her own. This morning, she will have to take her there by car as they have overslept… again!

Sinead is due to give a presentation to the whole school and cannot be late. Mum needs to get to work on time too. Her son Aidan has left already and is walking to school, but is very distracted by the thought of meeting up with Sheryl later and is constantly checking his phone.

Will they all make it on time? How will Robert get through today? Find out what happens to this ordinary family on this extraordinary day!
