The film takes place at the end of an era, the early years of the twentieth century. A time of momentous change reflected in the conflicts and choices a young woman experiences in the struggle between tradition and change. A struggle that continues to resonate today. Set in a rural community, Sunset Song is driven by Chris the young heroine and her intense passion for life, for the unsettling Ewan and for the unforgiving land. The First World War reaches out from afar bringing the modern world to bear on the community in the harshest possible way. Chris endures, now a woman of remarkable strength able to draw from the ancient land in looking to the future. Sunset Song is at once epic in emotional scale and deeply romantic at its core, given power by Terrence Davies' unflinching poetic realism.
