In the gray, wet weather of the Scottish highlands near Inverness, Coll works at a roadside stall selling tea and biscuits. She dreams of seeing New York and the world, a dream her boss derides. A daily customer is Old Tom, who's across the way digging a grave next to that of his wife, Annie. One day, Coll finds something Tom's lost, and he tells her about Annie's life as a dancer.

Not surprisingly a short about a girl in a lay-by.
Not a lot to it really. A few interesting camera angles or setups to jazz
up a bit. I get the inkling there is some deeper experiences behind the
story. On the surface it is about realizing that if you want something you
have to actually do something about it yourself.
The length of it was just right in my opinion. The lack of any braincandy

poor... a bit middle of the road.. (ho ho)
