Coming Up, is the strand which showcases dramas from the UK's 'most exciting emerging film makers.' When 30-year-old Hayley (Lucy Gaskell) is diagnosed with a brain tumour she insists that her husband, Phil (Gareth Farr), looks to the future, suggesting that he goes on a succession of blind dates. Phil hates the idea, but reluctantly agrees. However, when he turns up at the restaurant for his first date, he loses his nerve and instead meets up with his best mate, Lloyd, who is puzzled by Phil's worries, but suggests that he simply lies about the dates to his wife. As time passes, Hayley's condition worsens and she has to relocate to a care home. Without her, Phil falls apart, letting the house go to ruin and losing interest in practically everything. But then, after his wife has kicked him out, Lloyd turns up, puts some structure back into Phil's life and introduces him to his friend, Jess. Shame Hayley's had a change of heart...
