For many centuries the woods and marshes of Britain were inhabited by Celtic fairy creatures. In some parts of Scotland they still are a vivid part of the villager´s life.
In Taynuilt mortician James Lewis tries to embalm a corpse again and again – but as soon as the lights turn out, the body appears to be in his battered state again.
In Edinburgh unfortunate mortician Harris McLiod has to leave Edinburgh after his employer’s untimely and strange death. The grumpy mortician hastily accepts a new position on the almost remote district on the Isle of Skye where James is Iooking for a peer.
But instead of the solitude and liberty he was Iooking for, Harris encounters strange stories about dangerous ghosts and cruel fairies. And we all know that every legend bears indeed a grain of truth...
Residents, is your soul worth saving?
Arch-realist Harris needs to find out what ´s real and what only happens in his messed up head to save his sanity - and his life!
