What's the story?
Four old friends, 192 miles, what could possibly go wrong?
Gordon (Richard Lumsden - Sightseers, TV's The Catherine Tate Show) is determined that he and best friend Keith (Karl Theobald - TV's 2012, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa) will conquer Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood's Bay in North Yorkshire. But when a stray conversation determines that old school friends Steve (Jeremy Swift - Jupiter Ascending, TV's Downton Abbey) and Julian (Ned Dennehy - Tyrannosaur, TV's Luther) join them on the trip, their best-laid plans reveal multiple mid-life crises.

DOWNHILL is a comedy of errors, a testament to the tragically incompatible and a blow-by-blow account of the highs and lows of decades-long friendships.

DOWNHILL was directed by James Rouse, produced by Benji Howell and written by Torben Betts.
