‘Knox Oil will consider any price.’
‘I tell you what, Mister Mac, how about this: a dollar for every grain of sand in my hand?’
Ambitious Texan oil executive Mac MacIntyre arrives in Scotland on a mission to buy a small seaside village and replace it with a refinery. It’s the deal of a lifetime, but Mac soon finds that putting a price on this beautiful spot is more complicated than he bargained for. Before the locals get rich, they must decide what their home is worth.
