Powerful, simple drama with no sentimentality whatsoever.
26 October 2000 | by (strathclyde scotland) – See all my reviews

A troubled boy from the big city goes to live with his Welsh hill farmer uncle ( Gareth Thomas) , partly to escape trouble back home. The initial mutual hostility gives way to grudging respect on both sides, but external forces have other plans for both of them. Essentially a two-hander, but with superb performances from all the cast.
