Local Hero archiveBased on the screenplay of the original film. Ambitious Texan oil executive Mac MacIntyre arrives in Scotland on a mission to buy a small seaside village and replace it with a refinery. It's the deal of a lifetime, but Mac soon finds out that putting a price on this scenic spot is more complicated than he bargained for. Before the locals get rich, they must decide what a village is worth - a Maserati? A million? A marriage? Or is feeling at home worth more than even oil money can buy?

Book by Bill Forsyth. Book by David Greig. Music Mark Knopfler. Lyrics Mark Knopfler.
