The Grand Plan

Claire lives in her house on an island in Canada. She’s 87 years old and searching for love. A couple of years ago, she signed up to a dating agency. But there’s one problem – there are no men. Or as Claire puts it, ‘The men are either sick or dead.’

Claire writes a column in the newspaper about her loneliness and hopeless search for a relationship. By chance, Brit comes across it and an idea begins to take form. In fact it’s not just an idea but a grand plan about how Claire may finally find love.
