Filmmaker Simon Miller directs Scotland's first-ever Gallic-language film, a mournful and simultaneously fantastical tale of grandfather attempting to comfort a seven year old orphan and his siblings after the children are all orphaned in a tragic mountaineering accident. Realizing that the children are in dire need of a distraction, the concerned grandfather lovingly lavishes his young listeners with tales of a time when Scotland was a land of magical potions and mystical charms. Though confused pre-adolescent Aonghas is angered by the fact that he can't yet comprehend the stories being told to him, the meaning of these tales are sure to prove especially profound when he reflects on them much later in life.
