Based on the best-selling novel and inspired by true events, The Road Dance won the prestigious Audience Award at the 2021 Edinburgh International Film Festival. The film tells the story of Kirsty MacLeod (emerging talent Hermione Corfield – Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi) who dreams of a better life away from the suffocating isolation of her small Scottish island village.

When several young villagers are conscripted for service in the First World War, including her lover Murdo (Will Fletcher – upcoming Amazon series The Lord of the Rings), a road dance is held in their honour the evening before they depart. It’s on this fateful evening that Kirsty’s life takes a dramatic and tragic turn. The film also stars award-winning actor Mark Gatiss (The Father, The Favourite, Game of Thrones).
