On the last Friday of every August, the Burryman walks the boundary of South Queensferry, Scotland. Older than memory or record, this ritual is defined - and in turn defines - the community in which it takes place. For the man who dons the burrs it is a personal journey that takes him beyond the boundaries of civilization and time. For the boy who can only remember his father through his childhood memories and an old photograph, this film describes the attempt to connect with his father through his transformation into a force of nature.
