Two families living on a remote island off of Scotland are brought together by star-crossed lovers. When Ruth's brother Robbie plans to leave the island for a future abroad, her item of affection, Andrew, challenges her brother to race up the island's treacherous cliffs. Their challenge threatens to tear the families apart and ruin whatever peace is left on their island home, bringing both men right up onto THE EDGE OF THE WORLD. Shot entirely on the wild, windswept island of Foula in the Shetlands, this thrilling romantic drama from director Michael Powell (The Red Shoes, Stairway to Heaven) is beautiful and profoundly moving for its time.
