A BAFTA Scotland award-winning documentary portraying the Cape Wrath lighthouse keepers, working on the last manned lighthouse before it undergoes automation.

Is this the end of an era of brave men living in harsh conditions to keep the lights on, or have they wasted their lives and their potential? A moving and intimate look at the motivations, hopes and dreams of people doing often dangerous jobs in lonely and isolated locations.

This short film was the first of a continuing partnership between Tern and acclaimed director David Peat.
