Step into the well-worn shoes of Morag, an 86-year-old woman who lives alongside her 12 sheep in the Scottish Island home where five generations of her family lived before her. This is a portrait of a woman as she contemplates the next chapter in her life; Morag shares her unique sense of independence, attitude toward mortality, and the connection she has to her roots.
