Grace (Annette Bening) and Edward (Bill Nighy) have been married twenty-nine years. When their son Jamie comes to visit for the weekend at their seaside home, Edward informs him that he plans to leave Grace. The next day. Just another break-up. 

Hope Gap tracks the unravelling of three lives, through stages of shock, disbelief and anger, to a resolution, of sorts. It’s tender, it’s funny and above all, true. There are no easy answers, no simple paths to redemption, but in the end, it is a story of survival. A story of hope.
