The 1982 war between Britain and Argentina brought the Falkland or Malwinas Islands into the news headlines. This film is less spectacular: It shows the way of life of one inhabitant of this remote island in the South Atlantic. The film tells us in measured style about sheep farmer’s Ian Gleadell’s struggle with the rough landscape, the island’s administration and loneliness.
