Description: A bunch of Scottish Islanders are determined to hold on to a cargo of shipwrecked whisky, whatever the cost. In 1941, the SS Politician, en route to Jamaica, sank off the coast of Eriskay carrying 250,000 bottles of whisky, which the locals gleefully looted. Bottles are still to this day carried in by the tides to the beach. It must be a wonderful place to live.
