Omschrijving

In a former mining town stands The Old Oak, the last pub of a old town in northern England. The locals can barely keep their own heads above water and see their hometown increasingly emptied. Landlord TJ silently listens to his grumbling regulars. When the pub is also threatened with closure, the housing of Syrian refugees in the town causes additional unrest. But an unlikely friendship gently brings the different worlds together, with The Old Oak as their shared centerpiece.
