Description: A young boy makes a pact with a sinister fairy in this traditional Gaelic animated tale. The soundtrack is an old recording of the story, found in the School of Scottish Studies Archive. The hypnotic musical score was composed and performed especially for the film by renowned piper, Rory Campbell, and the animation, which looks like a moving oil painting, was created digitally by Catrìona Black.
