Summary
"Follows the Texas oil executive Mac, who is dispatched by his crackpot boss to a remote seaside village in Scotland with orders to buy out the town and develop the region for an oil refinery. But as business mixes with pleasure, Mac finds himself enchanted by both the picturesque community and its oddball denizens--and Texas starts to feel awfully far away"--Container
