Based on Lewis Grassic Gibbon's novel, widely considered the classic Scottish novel of the 20th century, this epic film is the story of Chris Guthrie - a young woman, living on a working farm who must battle tradition, change, and society's expectations to forge her own voice. As World War One looms, and with moments of heartbreak and pain, celebration and joy, Chris stands strong, drawing from the ancient land in looking to the future.
