If you're reading this, my funeral must have just finished. I've got something to ask of you...Who knows, you might even enjoy it? The Cadogan children haven't spoken to each other for three years. But their father, Gerry, has a plan to bring them together. To scatter his ashes, they must first drive his old camper van up to Scotland...

For the trip, Gerry has provided them with three family photo albums and a bottle of single malt whisky.

But will the journey help banish their ghosts and turn them back into a family? Or will it show them exactly why they've stayed apart for so long?
