Scotland in the 1930s: young Dougie Cunningham inherits a set of Great Highland Bagpipes from his grandfather Kelvin, a former piper with the legendary Scots Guards.
At the grave of his beloved relative the young Scot vows to uphold and honour the tradition, to learn this instrument which has been such a deeply meaningful symbol of his homeland for hundreds of years, and so to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps.
But life - particularly for young men - is not just about learning, and one day he meets the beautiful Caitlin, and quickly falls in love with her.
Their fragile young love is put to the test: Caitlin’s parents emigrate to the distant shores of Canada, taking Caitlin with them. Dougie stays behind alone, and pours all his energy into learning the Highland pipes,
but dark clouds are appearing on the horizon, storms are brewing, pushing the world towards a terrible war - the future becomes very uncertain. Dougie, inspired by the many stories of his brave fellow Scots fighting together in the Scots Guards, enlists in the legendary regiment and is sent to the battlefront.
