Wild Country

Synopsis: In Glasgow, the teenager single mother Kelly Ann is forced by Father Steven "Steve" Gillis to deliver her baby boy for adoption. Six weeks later, Father Steve organizes a hike in the countryside with the youths David, Louise, Mark and Kelly Ann and leaves them alone in the Scottish Highlands. He shows the meeting point in the map and tells that he would wait for them in an inn on the next day. Out of the blue, Kelly Ann's ex-boyfriend Lee joins the group invited by David. While hiking, the group stumbles with a weird shepherd and later Lee puts the man on the run. During the night, Kelly Ann overhears the cry of a baby and she goes with Lee to a derelict old castle where they find an abandoned baby in the middle of dead bodies. Soon the group is hunted down by a deadly wolf-like creature and has to decide whether they hide or fight to survive.

Don't push! - I have to! - Kelly Ann,

you can't push until I tell you to.

We're almost there.

You're doing really well.

Okay, are you ready?

- Aye! - Push!

Good, excellent. Now, again!

One more, come on Kelly,

make this the last one!

And here's Baby.

Is she going to hold the baby?

- No, he's to go straight next door.

Do you want one?

How's she doing?

She's fine.

Kelly Ann...

I've just come from a happy couple

who will make wonderful parents

for that beautiful wee boy.

You made a family today, Kelly Ann.

Going to do us a favour, Father?

- Of course.

Get the hell out of here.

You did the right thing.

He's right.

Don't make the same mistakes as...

- As you?

Kelly Ann, they're here.

The bottles are in the fridge, Mum.

They'll pick them up later. - Right.

I'm away, then.

- Okay.

Kelly, come on!

- Shut up, Louise, I was pumping.

You're still doing that? What for?

They pay me for it.

- Painful for you!

Oh, how would you know?

Morning, Kelly Ann.

Alright there, Father?

Hi David, bit early for you?

Lazy bastard.

I'm not lazy. I'm laid-back.

Aye, must be all that marijuana, eh?

That's f***ing sore!

- Good.

Oh come on, don't hit the mascot!

I'm not your mascot!

- You're the wee cute one.

You're the big ugly cow. Maybe you

should be a mascot. - Hit him again!

That's enough of the rough stuff.

It's not funny.

Ah, don't cry, Mark.

- Can't help it, looking at your face.

Shut it!

Louise, did you bring a food bucket

or are you just gonna eat grass?

You know this is Sawney Bean country?

Don't tell me you've never heard

of Sawney Bean? - Nope, never.

Heard of 'Mr Bean'.

- Sawney Bean!

The Scottish cannibal.

Why don't you tell us all about him?

- Well,

way back he used to live in a cave

up in the hills with his wife,

and 14 children...

- Must have been a Catholic!

... and 30 grandchildren.

They were

sort of an inbred cannibal clan

who would ambush travellers, take

them back to the cave and eat them.

They even used to pickle the bodies

to have enough food for winter.

Anyway this went on for years,

with more and more folk

disappearing until one of

Sawney's victims managed to escape

and lead the King's army

back to the cave.

Sawney and his family

were taken to Edinburgh

where they were burnt alive.

They say that Sawney gnawed his

own flesh, while the flames cooked it

just the way he liked it!

No way!

- That's what they say.

They also say that maybe a couple

of Sawney's grandchildren escaped.

And that the people round here

have got the blood of Sawney Bean

running in their veins.


- Shite!

Right, who's getting the gate?


Bunch of fannies!

Hurry up!

Go, Father! Just leave him!


That was good, Father. Very funny!

We've got to carry all this sh*t?

Okay, here are your maps.

You see where we are?

- Aye,

sheep-shagging country.

Don't need a map for that.

Watch out in that woolly sweater,

you might get jumped.

That's enough, David.

We're at the drop-off point we

plotted last week. Have you found it?

I'm sorry, have you found it?

- Aye. - Good.

Consider yourselves dropped off.


Oh, what's the pick-up point?

What is it?

Noon tomorrow at Blane Home Farm.

At noon? - And where exactly is

Blane Home Farm, when it's at home?

It's on the map. It's also

an excellent bed and breakfast.

I will see you tomorrow...


What a wanker.

- Grow up, David.

Make me!

There it is.


- There.

F*** sake, that's miles away!

That's the idea

of a wild country hike, big man.

So what do we do now?

- We start walking.

You coming?
