Ardnish, 1944. On his deathbed, Donald John Gillies sends for a priest to hear his last confession. Waiting anxiously for the priest, his mind travels back to the dusty plains of South Africa in 1901, where he fought as a Lovat Scout during the Boer War and where he met the woman who was the love of his life.

Forced to abandon her and her young daughter in a British concentration camp, DJ returns to Scotland and his old life after his camp is ambushed by Boers and many of his fellow soldiers are massacred. As he lies dying, an unexpected visitor arrives at Ardnish, making it more imperative then ever for DJ to come to terms with the past.
