Filmed over four years, a film that begins as a simple act of faith between father and son soon spirals into a roller coaster of incredible re-invention.

Uisdean wants forgiveness. After 16 years in prison, he’s released to the Highlands to balance his crofting dreams against obligations to care for his father. It takes an extraordinary love story to elude growing accusations in a film that drifts effortlessly between two opposing portraits of the same man: carer or murderer? 16 Years Till Summer tells a very human story of euphoric hope set against documented tragedy in a film about what gets sacrificed when people need to see the best in each other. Filmed over four years, compelling storytelling and stunning imagery pit the needs of the heart against the rational judgement of society in a documentary about redemption, interrupted, in the Highlands of Scotland.

IS/UK, 2015, 87 min., Dir. Lou McLoughlan
