In a remote coastal village in Nothern Scotland, the choice between money and happiness has never been more clear or carried such deadly consequences. When Moss arrives in a remote coastal village on the North Sea, he is accepted as what he appears to be: a somewhat grubby American backpacker on holiday. He gets contract work on the offshore oil rig and courts Julie Tucker, a local café owner and single mother. Gradually the town begins to realize just who it is they're harboring: a Special Forces soldier turned drugs smuggler, and, if that wasn't bad enough, he has a lot of really rough bastards riding into town after him. The safety of the town and the woman he loves vs. the successful conclusion of a very lucrative drug deal... which will Moss choose?
