A German rocket scientist arrives on a small Scotish island in the mid 1930s. He's there to run tests on a new type of rocket that is to be used for mail delivery between the island and the mainland. Initially he's met with scepticism, but slowly the islanders come to like and trust him. One of the young women falls in love with him, but with WWII around the corner life gets complicated.
A wonderfully thoughtful and involving movie that leaves an imprint well beyond it's initial liftoff. Based on a true story , one of the many "small" stories prior to WW II , that lend an understanding to the mindsets of the majority of common man cultures, impacted by others perceived as former enemies and perhaps future foes, with the darkening of war clouds on the horizon. Viewed at the Stony Brook Film festival, the film was enthusiastically received . Well written and expertly cast. The characters were most believable and drew one in to experience their trials and tribulations.
