Storyline

A young woman joins a group of protesters trying to stop the construction of a highway through a forest with the purpose of having sex with their leader. But when morning comes and the authorities show up to disband the protesters, she hits a man with a log. This causes the two to have to go on the run. With the help of a sickly, but sympathetic woman, the two slip through police roadblocks. Traveling with her, they learn she is an ex-army lesbian who just wants to see a final sunrise at the Orkney Islands before her death. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

27 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved the film its a road film for the 90s touching sad, funny at times starts in England ends in Scotland the three leads in the film are lovely this film is about how hard and cold life can be follows different life's and people from different backgrounds its so well done and there is not one boring bit in it and one thing i loved was seeing the beautiful Scottish country sides and the drive up from England to Scotland the two young leads are superb actors especially the guy who places declan

i would give this underground film 9 out of 10 seen it on TV years ago and got the DVD 2 years ago
