Life in the Scottish Hebrides is harsh. Some call it ‘the edge of the world.’ For the beautiful Kirsty, her love for Murdo and their shared dreams of America promise escape from the scrape of the land and a stifled destiny. But The Great War changes everything when Murdo is conscripted. The night before the young men go off to battle, tragedy is set in motion as villagers swirl and sup at a ‘road dance.’

Based on the acclaimed novel by John MacKay, The Road Dance is adapted for the screen and directed by Richie Adams.
