Summary
  • Believing that her prayers to God to bring her husband home from his job on an offshore oil rig caused an accident that left him paralyzed, a pious, young Scottish woman, tragically, submits to his wish that she take on other lovers, convinced that this will aid in his recovery
  • In the early 1970's a young naive girl, Bess, living in a small community on the north west coast of Scotland, falls in love with oil-rig worker and man-of-the-world, Jan. Despite local opposition they marry. Jan returns to the rig, whilst Bess counts the days to his homecoming, sure that their love is made in heaven. When an accident renders Jan paralysed he is worried that Bess will cut herself off from normal life. He convinces her that she will aid his recovery by taking a lover and relating to him their sexual acts
