Adapted from the novel by Lewis Grassic Gibbon, the film tells the story of Chris Guthrie (Agyness Deyn) and her journey from schoolgirl to young womanhood, to marriage, to motherhood, and ultimately to widowhood, set against the harsh but beautiful landscape of rural Scotland prior to and immediately after the First World War.  It is a portrait of endurance and transcendental love of the world and other people. To quote Philip Larkin, "What will survive of us is love."
