(Peter Riegert) gets more than he bargained for when a seemingly simple
business trip to Scotland changes his outlook on life. Sent by his colorful
boss (Burt Lancaster) to the small village of Ferness, Mac is looking to
quickly buy out the townspeople, so his company can build a new refinery. But
after a taste of country life Mac begins to question whether he is on the
right side of this transaction.
