Widow Adam Mac Adam passes his lonely days on the Isle of Man with his prized sheepdog, Zach, by his side. When his orphaned grandson, David, visits for the summer, he’s pulled into the decades-old feud between Adam and his neighbor, Keith Moore – years of fierce shepherding competition have driven the men apart. But with help from David and Zach, Adam slowly learns to accept his tragic past, to love again, and to make amends with a friend lost.

Dove Review

Adam MacAdam is a bitter man who keeps to himself. The loss of his wife, his favorite dog and now his only daughter, who lived in America, has turned him into an unloving person. But when faced with taking in his 10-year-old grandson, whom he has never met, he does so but for the summer only. Unfortunately, David is not met with open arms from his grandfather in this new land.

This is a story about hanging on to old hurtful feelings that get in the way of new relationships and the loss of family ties. It is a dramatic story but unfortunately due to the content of damnation toward others it cannot be awarded our Dove Seal as a family-friendly film.
