Bill Nighy stars as a bat-obsessed widower in this romantic comedy by Amelia Bullmore.

After his wife died in a car crash three years ago, Christopher decided to ditch his job and flee to Cornwall, where he settled on bat protection as his mission - he would do something very small but do it extremely well. But along came Colette, a woman still reeling from her husband's desertion a year ago, and her teenage daughters to disturb his peace.
