The late 1950s. When time took a deep breath in preparation for the next decade to sweep away the old and change everything for ever. This is a love story of two people who are at opposite sides of the old life and ready to come together and play a part in the new. John Mason, a man determined to step up and away from his one man business and Flora Ballardine, the fiery laird's daughter. They meet in London.

An evening out with an escort, the very unpleasant Freddie. The evening ends with John being the butt of Flora's temper because of her disastrous time with Freddie. Though drawn to each other they separate not expecting to meet again, and so commences a love story that weaves its way in and out of the beautiful wilds of Scotland and the multicultural industry of Birmingham.
