Orkney

A triumvirate of tales adapted from the short stories of Orcadian writer George Mackay Brown detailing the simple life of the islanders in both past and modern times – A Time to Keep, telling of a crofter’s hard life making a living with his young wife and local disapproval; The Whaler’s Return, a picaresque drunken trek across the island for the titular homecomer; and Celia, the present day story of morose young woman Hannah Gordon who lives with her stepfather (Fulton Mackay) and ‘entertains’ local menfolk in return for whisky.
