Storyline

Murray and Babs live on an isolated farm. Their sheep graze the surrounding wind-bleached moors. They have a long, if not completely happy marriage, which 21 years ago produced Billy. Billy is autistic and it's the 1950s. To most people Billy is a child trapped in a man's body. Murray like the doctors does not really understand him. While Billy can help with manual jobs, he requires regular attention. For Murray, the time has come for Billy to move on. Babs is aghast and Billy grows anxious at the prospect of leaving the farm, family and pet pig he is so attached to. As Murray prepares the pig for market, a horrific incident forces Babs into a terrible life changing choice; husband or son
