Shetland is a place of wild, unforgiving landscapes, supernatural beliefs and a soundscape barely altered over time. The film explores storytelling and social imagination in Shetland. The folklore tale, Da Hillsook Wedeen, has a timeless quality: unfolding from historical trauma forward through generations of women’s voices. What does it mean to be a woman left on the shore?
