Synopsis

Cult-pop raconteur Aidan Moffat, best known for his lyrics about sex, drugs and male anxiety, decides to rewrite and perform Scotland’s oldest songs. The only thing standing in his way is a 79-year-old force of nature and travelling balladeer called Sheila Stewart. He believes these songs are ripe for updating. She does not. With Stewart's wrath ringing in his ears, Moffat embarks on a road trip that finds him dressed for battle in a Highland graveyard caught between feuding monster-hunters at Loch Ness, and singing in a dismissive farmer's kitchen – before facing Stewart in his home-town of Glasgow for an unlikely final showdown, in this funny film about music and death.
