We are all running out of time.

One family find themselves off the beaten track in a remote idyll in the West Country where it seems Time has stood still.

A strange legend, an egg timer and an old record hold a secret but why has the grandfather clock stopped?

They have all been on a journey – but to where?

Sometimes… to get where you’re going you just have to stand still.

Synopsis

Sometimes…to get where you’re going you just have to stand still.

We are all running out of time.

James Hargreaves must change his lifestyle: over-weight and over worked he must get fit and healthy to avoid a heart attack. His wife, Hannah, must change her lifestyle: never enough hours in a day to be all things to all people, she must learn to relax to avoid a nervous breakdown. Amy, their daughter, wants the world to change and the family change its lifestyle: go green, recycle and save the planet to avoid a global catastrophe.

TIME: We can be a slave to it or we could just try and appreciate it.

One family find themselves off the beaten track in a remote idyll in the picturesque West Country. They are strangely drawn to the mysterious lake where Time appears to have stood still.  What is its secret?  What is its magic?

A sweet elderly lady and her old fashioned son seem to know a lot more than they are saying. Who are they? And why has the Grandfather Clock stopped? A strange legend, an egg timer and an old record seem to hold the key.

Could it be that Time never runs out?

The Hargreaves realise they have all been on a journey – but to where? And will they ever be able to find that time again?
