Synopsis

The tiny Hebridean island of Eigg is up for sale and after decades of absentee and uncooperative landlords, the islanders have decided to put in a bid themselves. But can they raise the asking price of £2 million? This film follows the highs and lows of their campaign as the islanders fight to buy their freedom from feudalism.
