DIRECTOR: Laura Carreira

Synopsis

Jim, an isolated ex-miner who works as a night-shift security guard faces his last day at work before retirement. He spends the night patrolling the slag heap of a former coal mine - a remnant of Scotland's industrial past. The film explores the intrinsic relation of an individual to work and asks what's left when, at the end of a lifetime of labour, a man loses his purpose.
