What’s the Story?

When Mac MacIntyre, an ambitious Texan oil executive arrives in Scotland on a mission to replace a small seaside village with an oil refinery, he’s met with concerned residents. It’s the deal of a lifetime, but Mac soon finds that putting a price on this beautiful spot is more complicated than he bargained for. Before the locals get rich, they must decide what their home is worth.
