Laurel & Hardy, one of the world’s great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. But the charm and beauty of their performances shines through and they re-connect with their adoring fans, old and new. The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can’t quite shake the specter of Laurel & Hardy’s past; and long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. A portrait of a creative marriage begins to unfold as the duo, aware that they may be approaching their swan song, try to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.
