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>

Sensitively directed
21 February 2003 | by berniedoyle1See all my reviews

A beautiful film very which deals with the subjects of death and child abuse in a very sensitive manner. It protrays a very real insight into the lives of lonely people. Wonderful acting from the three main leads. Fabulous Scotish scenery!
