Synopsis

Developed/ Produced by GMAC as part of the ‘DigiCult Short Film Scheme’ 2002 – 2007

Alistair McIntyre, a sales assistant at a department store in Glasgow, is embarrassed about his past.  He and his sister Cristina grew up in a hippy commune in Spain.  Sixteen years ago after a big row with his parents, he was dumped on a dusty road in Granada.  That was the last time he saw his sister.  He now discovers that she is living in a commune in the Scottish Highlands.  He turns up, with a film crew in tow, and, although she is perfectly happy here, he is determined to save her.
