Travelling North synopsis

Frank (Leo McKern) is an irascible widower who takes delight in his nonconformity and leftist ideals. He marries Frances (Julia Blake), much to the chagrin of her adult daughters, and the elderly newlyweds travel north from the big city to a small port town, intending to settle into an idyllic retirement. In their new home, they befriend some of the locals and spend their days fishing and watching the sunsets. When Frank suffers a mild heart attack, the specter of mortality enters their lives.
