Since the split of her 18-year marriage, Liz Dewhurst has lived with her son, Alex, and her father on their family farm on the east coast of Fife. Liz's acrimonious divorce and the decline of the business has left them burdened with debt - Liz wants to keep the farm but her father feels it sensible to sell to a company who wants to make the land into a golf course.

When Arthur breaks his ankle, she is joined by Will, Arthur's estranged son, and with Arthur being the patient from hell and Liz feeling that she shouldn't be there, the return journey to Scotland is not an easy one but on the way the unexpected happens...

To look at her life in a different way, standing tall, and...
