Harold Fry is a shy, retired British brewery salesman.  He receives a letter from a former coworker whom he hasn’t had any contact with in 20 years, Queenie Hennessey.  This brief note sparks Harold to take an unplanned trek – to walk the 600 miles or so from his home in southern England to the hospice where Queenie is dying of cancer.  Without hiking boots, rain gear, map or cell phone, Harold begins his unlikely pilgrimage across the English countryside. Along the way, he meets strangers who stir up memories and flashbacks – of when his marriage was filled with promise and then not, his inadequacy as a father and shortcomings as a husband.
