Returning to her native Orkney after five years, Rachel hopes to pick up life and love where she left them; but learns that time does not wait. She finds a different Malcolm, for whom she would have sacrificed her chance at university if only he had said he loved her. Although Malcolm loved the islands, he has left them and is now only on a brief visit with his girlfriend Lyn. Nevertheless, old flames are rekindled, but things are futher complicated when Rachel's boyfriend from university days comes to Orkney as an archaeologist.
