Every morning Frank is wakened by aeroplanes passing overhead on the way to far more exciting destinations, leaving him behind to spend another day searching for giraffe figurines in the charity shop to add to what was already Britain's 'fourth largest mantelpiece zoo '. When Frank receives a telephone call from his daughter Beth informing him that her life is falling apart on the other side of the Atlantic, Frank is determined to go to her rescue. After and an unexpected and timely change in fortune he buys a plane ticket and leaves the monotony of his life behind to visit his beloved family in America. Deftly navigating the obstacle course provided by airport security checks and suitcases on wheels, and after surviving his first long-distance flight, Frank arrives in LA dressed in an appropriately bright tourist shirt, ready to embrace everything Hollywood has to offer. This is his opportunity for the holiday of a life time. While taking in the sights, Frank joins forces with his feisty granddaughter Laura and together they begin work on The Reunion Project in an attempt to bring some happiness back into Beth's life."@en ;
