Episode 1: Trust

It begins, as terrible things often do, with a knife…

After a few months assimilating to island life on St Kilda, Lockie MacGregor is deemed worthy of truly becoming a member of Dubrach’s family. However, with not everyone on the island convinced of his worth Lockie finds just making it to the ceremony an incredible challenge.

There’s no change without sacrifice, and life on this secluded isle is about to change irrevocably.
