A warm, humorous, and deeply moving story about surviving old age. When the geriatric ward in a small Yorkshire hospital is threatened with closure, the hospital decides to fight back.

Allelujah celebrates the spirit of the elderly patients whilst paying tribute to the deep humanity of the medical staff battling with limited resources and ever-growing demand.

'Wry, sly and rousing, it's enough to get you out on the doorstep to bang for Bennett, saucepan and wooden spoon in hand' - Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
