A blend of detective fantasy and family drama, staring Bill Nighy as Scrabble-obsessed, deadpan Merseyside tailor Alan, whose eldest son Michael stormed out of the house after a particularly heated round of the popular board game, never to return. Years later, Alan and his other son Peter continue the search while trying to repair their own strained relationship - a family who know plenty of words but struggle to communicate.
