An orphan girl comes to a Skye fishing family at the turn of the century, and causes sexual jealousy and tragedy
Mary Lawson, a Scottish orphan, arrives on the Isle of Skye in 1900.
Taken in by the Macraes, lifelong enemies of the MacFarishes, Mary is treated coldy and harshly.
Lonely, Mary befriends Will MacFarish, a friendship that creates jealousy and passion that tears apart the brothers.
Wildly melodramatic but good-looking open-air melodrama, a surprising and striking British film of its time. Macrae gives a splendidly malevolent performance. (Halliwell’s)
