What We Did on Our Holiday – Drama/Comedy (PG)

Watch the Trailer

Newly separated Abi and Doug and their kids 10yo Lottie, 8yo Mickey, and 5yo Jess are driving from London to Doug's father's Gordie's [Billy Connolly] home in the Scottish Highlands for Gordie's 75th birthday party, believed to be his last, as he's dying of cancer. Because of Gordie's condition, Doug and Abi don't want to tell him that they're divorcing, so they swear the troubled kids to secrecy.

Surrounded by relatives, the kids innocently reveal the ins and outs of their family life and many intimate details about their parents. It's soon clear that when it comes to keeping a big secret under wraps from the rest of the family, their children are their biggest liability... Find out how the rest of the family cope and see if the holiday will ever end.
