Sweet story about two young friends, living in the English countryside in 1953, who decide to run away to London in order to witness the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. They're hoping John's Uncle, a Royal Escort guard, will help them but first they have to get to the city, which involves a lot of complicated travelling plans. 82m/C VHS .
