Synopsis

Set in the early 20th century, 'Sunset Song' begins with the suicide attempt of a poverty stricken woman in Scotland, broken by repeated childbirths, who kills herself and poisons her twin babies. The story follows one of the woman’s surviving daughters, Chris Guthrie, who must manage the farm after her mother’s death, and, after her father, who has had a stroke, becomes bedridden.

How can we bear time, or subdue nature? We cannot. We can only endure...
