Returning to the island she left eight years earlier, young Mairi plans just to attend a funeral and then go back to her job in the city. But she forgot about the "bannan" - the family and emotional ties that bind her to her birthplace. Staying on to care for her beloved grandmother, Mairi gets drawn ever closer towards a confrontation with the father who never accepted her.
