A remote Scottish island community is sharply divided over whether to seek a new life on the mainland, and a father and son fall prey to the conflict. Shooting on the remote island of Foula marked Powell's first bid for creative independence, and the film's beauty and integrity emerge more clearly than ever in a new digital restoration.
