This humorous and melancholic portrait of a male voice choir in North East Wales begins with filmmaker Merf’s father, Ed, a 90-year-old widower, selling the family home and making early arrangements for his own funeral. Weekly practice is his last remaining solace but, with an average age of 74, his beloved choir is facing a crisis of its own. They must act quickly or face extinction and the hunt begins to find “brown haired men” in their forties and fifties to keep the choir going. As their search intensifies, the group grows closer. Ed finds new meaning in his life while Merf deals with his own bad news by focusing on the choir’s revival. Eventually, they travel to Northern Ireland to perform for the first time in two decades.
