Hector has been living on the motorways for years. His once comfortable family life has been replaced by a never-ending tour of service stations that offer him shelter, anonymity, washing facilities and food. The story follows his journey south from Scotland on his annual pilgrimage to a temporary Christmas shelter in London where he finds comfort, friendship and warmth. Over the course of his Homeric journey, Hector decides to reconnect with his long estranged past. As his previous life catches up with him, the story of how he came to be leading a marginal life begins to emerge.Written by

Peter Mullan ('Tyrannosaur') plays the eponymous 'Hector' in this film. He is sleeping rough in some part of Scotland with two friends and it is deep winter. He is in failing health but seems to just carry on eking out an existence.
The film follows him on a journey from Scotland to London to a temporary Christmas shelter that he has been attending for years. Here he knows people and sees it as a sort of family. And family is the one thing he has been running from but now feels it is time to reconnect with those from his past.
Now this is a simple story on first looking at it – but the complexities that lead a person to any given point in their life are never so straightforward and that is the case here too. The film reveals at a slow pace but with absolute charm. This is the sort of film that moves you with its sheer force of story telling and sense of human frailty and as such is a wonderful piece of cinema that I can only recommend.
