On a lonely road in the Scottish highlands, Shell mans the family petrol station with her emotionally distant father Pete. Her only other contact is with passing drivers – some regulars. After her mother deserted them years ago Shell is devoted to to her father, perhaps too much so, as Graham reveals, in this powerful portrait of life on the margins of society.
A richly poetic drama as well as an engrossing study of physical and emotional isolation, this hushed and haunting coming-of-age drama from the director of 'Iona' was nominated for the BAFTA for Best Debut
★★★★ "A hushed and haunted coming-of-age drama." - Xan Brooks, The Guardian
