Lawrence MacEwen has farmed the Isle of Muck since the late 1960s, owned by his Father before him. With his family, he has created a rural retreat that sits out of time with the rapid transformations of the world around it. Revered for his eco-conscious stewardship in the 1970s, Lawrence now finds himself stubbornly battling to preserve the island for the next generation.

Dutch filmmaker Cindy Jansen captures a uniquely cinematic portrait of a place and a person haunted by the past and struggling to maintain their relevance for the future.

Screening Scotland-wide as part of the 74th edition of Edinburgh International Film Festival, supported by the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund. EIFF 2021 takes place from 18-25 August, with in-person and online events. Join in the conversation and find out more at
