One of Bill Forsyth's most sure-footed ventures, and one in which his eye for charm balances with his love for whimsy. An ambitious executive of an American oil company is sent to buy an entire Scottish town for a future drilling project, but soon finds himself falling in love with the place, while being hoodwinked by the community.
