Synopsis: An observational meditation on grief, time and what we leave behind; a vivid portrait of loss – of a loved one, a village, a post office. Norah MacRae – the longest serving post office worker in Scottish history – reflects on what’s to come in her remaining years from the wee shop attached to her house.
