Eight adults, who believe that exploring the globe isn’t just for youngsters on a gap year, feature in this series, starting with millionaire nightclub owner Margo Carmichael.

Margo feels as if her business empire in Blackburn, where she was born and bred, has become like a prison. So she leaves it all behind for a four-month adventure across south east Asia.

“I want to find the real me, underneath all the veneers.” says the outspoken 63-year old.

Taking Margo at face value is exactly what this film doesn’t do, with gently compelling results.
