For seniors and persons with disabilities who cannot drive, reliable and safe transportation to medical appointments and other social services is an important key to combatting isolation and depression, and to help people remain active community members.
Journeying through rural South Wales on a community bus for seniors, a caring driver provides passengers, who live alone without aid, the opportunity to participate in the everyday activities we take for granted. George Cowie and Tom Huntingford direct this charming and colorful documentary, which takes place in England, 2017.
