When his older brother and three other crew members are killed in a freak fishing accident, Aaron (MacKay) is left awash in his grief and guilt. He tries to come to terms with the tragedy in his small Scottish community.


Kitchen-sink drama meets magic realism in this well-acted but uneven British debut. Set in a remote, close-knit Scottish community, it stars George MacKay as Aaron, the troubled survivor of a fishing expedition. As his guilt mounts, some difficult home truths begin to emerge.

If MacKay experienced sunshine on Leith, this is more hell in the Hebrides. The results are spotty but occasionally powerful.
