Uisdean wants forgiveness. After 16 years in prison, he’s released to the Highlands to wrestle dreams nursed in prison against an obligation to care for his father. But it takes an extraordinary love story to elude growing accusations against him in a film that slips seamlessly between two portraits of the same man, as carer and convicted murderer.
16 Years Till Summer is a film about what gets sacrificed when people need to see the best in each other. It’s about where we find truth in the stories we tell. Filmed over four years, compelling storytelling and cinematic imagery blur the line between the fairy-tale of the heart and the rational judgement of society in a film that is a hybrid of heart and head; magic realism and documented tragedy. A story of redemption, interrupted, in the Highlands of Scotland.
