Storyline

Murdo, 15, and his father, Tom, journey from Scotland to North Alabama to visit their American/Scots relatives after the death of his mother. Murdo is an accordion player but has not played since his mother passed. He meets an old lady called Queen Monzee-ay who plays accordion. She rekindles his interest in music and invites him play a gig with her. The music becomes a wedge which drives itself between him and his father, who out of the best intentions tries to control him. Eventually Murdo transcends his father and follows the music. Written by Kenny Glenaan

Trivia

The climactic musical gig scene was filmed over the course of 2 days by filming the whole set of all the songs live back to back without cuts before covering it from a different angle. All the revelers and dancers were unpaid volunteers. See more »

Powerful musical background to a tale of loss and finding as a young Scottish lad discovers life through music in the deep south.
29 June 2018 | by lornshillht-69323See all my reviews

A gentle portrait of a tight grieving Scottish father with few words to express his feelings and his musical son on their trip to family in the south of the USA. Through music, Murdo, the son, finds new challenges and new hopes. The small intimate scale of the movie, backed by the strong lively music that runs through it, taps into many rich themes of family, culture and the importance of music.
