Edie (Sheila Hancock) is someone who has sacrificed a vast amount of her life to being a dutiful child and then a dutiful carer/wife. In her grim widowhood, she finds that her alienated and embittered daughter has plans to put her in a care home. So, emboldened by memories from a recently discovered postcard of Mount Suilven in the Scottish Highlands, she heads off to wildly beautiful Inverness, where she rashly plans to go hiking and camping. Local lad Jonny (Kevin Guthrie) offers to be her guide, at an extortionate cash rate, money he needs to boost the camp store business he’s setting up with his girlfriend. But soon he grows to like this cantankerous, difficult, vulnerable woman and grows ashamed of his attempts to milk her for money.
The stand-out beauty of Scotland comes over strongly as does Sheila Hancock who delivers a nuanced and poignant performance.
