Ritchie (played by Martin Compston) is a Glaswegian chancer with low hopes and no prospects. Disillusioned with city life, he goes undercover at a Highland conservation centre to make his fortune as an illegal pearl fisher with the help of his two hapless and accident prone mates. Here he meets Beth (played by Talulah Riley), a pretty English conservationist passionate about saving endangered mussels from the clutches of pearl thieves in the Scottish Highlands. Falling for her instantly, Ritchie must beat off competition in the form of Highland Ranger Ethan (played by Morgan Watkins), a smooth talking American Adonis convinced that Beth can’t resist his charms forever.
