    • Synopsis
    • Haunted by her past, and battling bi-polor disorder, Rose Leonard, a textile artist, takes refuge on Uist, in a remote island community off the coast of Scotland. She cocoons herself in a house by the sea, with memories of Gavin, her lover who betrayed her and the pain of her daughter, Megan's, estrangement eroding the paper-thin walls she has constructed to keep herself sane.

      Her curiosity overcomes her isolation when she finds her neighbor is a poet who's dark and intense work she greatly admires. Calum is a rugged younger man who intrigues her, but who has his own demons to exorcise. A budding friendship brings on an artistic collaboration, which leads to a sexual attraction. A tenuous and rocky sexual affair struggles up through the cracks of Rose's better judgment. When Megan comes for an unexpected visit, bearing a secret she can no longer keep, Rose's grip on her sanity begins to slip away along with her happiness. She must decide to choose to risk feeling life fully with a new love and a new relationship with her daughter, or to turn her back on both and live a a safe, but closed-off life alone.
