A touching cinematic exploration of what it meant (and still means) to people who had to leave Berneray, the Hebridean island of their birth, to get an education, work, and live. This new documentary explores the effect this movement, especially of women, had on the Gaelic language and culture of the island. Previously unseen colour archive film of everyday island life in the ‘60s and ‘70s is woven with the words of today’s islanders and descendants and complimented by a soundtrack drawing on the rich traditions of Gaelic song. #dùthchas #home #Gàidhlig #Gaelic #Berneray #islandlife
