A thoroughly enjoyable and humorous romp follows restless Ritchie and pals across the scenic Scottish Highlands, as they embark upon a redemption story to rival many of it's high-budget Summer counterparts.
Of course, no 'bad guy turns good' redemption story is complete without a competing love interest - and an American conservationist counterpart vies for Beth's attention throughout. Several other threads accompany the main narrative, including the ever popular 'good vs evil' double act between the criminal operations and the local police. Arguably the most appealing though is when we are watching the Otter gradually make it's way back to health - symbolic of nature's plight not being too late to save.
Conservationist Beth (played by the writer/director Riley to complete her triumphant triple act) helps ground the film in it's underlying message - and the ever-present threat to our world's natural beauty has never been highlighted more starkly than against the beautiful northern backdrop to this fun flick.
