This film follows a vanishing community’s beloved and unique tradition. The Gaelic speakers of Lewis and Scotland are the only people in the EU exempt from a ban on hunting gannets, but they are only permitted to hunt them once a year on a desolate island 40 miles offshore. This is the first time in 50 years that they have allowed it to be filmed, and most likely the last.
