Two old men escape from a care home and go to a metal festival…
Cyril doesn’t like old people, which is a shame because he is one. When he learns his estranged granddaughter, Lily, has her big break with her thrash metal band, Abscess, he and his friend Neville are determined to show up and support her. Neither of them will ever be the same again.

AWOL is loosely based on a nearly true story. The show’s writer and co-star Rob Gee explains: “It was a news item from Germany. It turned out not to be true, but it inspired me to write a buddy movie-style adventure caper with a positive message about ageing. It’s also a love letter to metalheads.”
