In the English coastal town of Whitby, Reith (Mark Addy) runs the local donkey rides with his three children, Angie (Molly Windsor), Polly (Macy Shackleton) and Ben (Rhys Connah). As Whitby shuts for the winter, their Uncle Blythe (Lee Boardman) returns from prison, looking to collect a long-standing family debt. When Reith unexpectedly passes away, the children left to cope for themselves, Angie, the eldest, decides to flee with her siblings and two donkeys. After a chase through the alleyways of Whitby, the children escape into the wilderness and beauty of the North York Moors. Here begins a search for their estranged mother Maggie (Tara Fitzgerald). With Blythe in close pursuit, the children and donkeys venture west across the country, crossing paths with chancers, thieves, and new friends. Through the misadventures they discover what it truly means to be a family.
