An eccentric homeless woman of uncertain origins, Mary (Maggie Smith), "temporarily" parks her van in Alan’s (Alex Jennings) London driveway and proceeds to live there for the next 15 years.

Over the span of those 15 years, Alan learns that Mary’s past life isn’t quite what he expected.

Based on the memoir and stage play by Alan Bennett, which tells the true story of Bennett’s relationship with the real “lady in the van,” Mary Shepherd.
