Uisdean wants forgiveness. After 16 years in prison, he has returned home to nurse his ageing father in a small village in the Scottish Highlands. But Uisdean also needs to rebuild his life.

What follows is as much a struggle with tradition and Highland identity as it is with the weight of his own past.
