When two elderly acquaintances are abandoned on a group outing, they try to seek help and in the process, develop an unlikely bond.
Old man Rick emerges from a public toilet to discover he has been left behind during a group excursion to a nature reserve. In trying to reach safety he encounters a familiar face, fellow castaway, Mrs. Gallagher, who is nonchalant about the situation. Whilst Rick is engaged in a futile attempt to draw attention to their predicament, Mrs. Gallagher is calmly confident they will be found soon enough. As they bide their time, their interplay and peculiar discord reveal a mutual fear of loneliness and a yearning for companionship long abandoned.
