Bodkin Ras

Bodkin Ras

A mosaic of a small town and the human soul.

The people in Forres don't work. Between 9 and 5 they dissolve into the pubs, where the light shines in their midst as a warm glow. Then the stranger Bodkin arrives into town. He has come to this remote corner of Europe to hide and to lay low. This turns out to be impossible in a place where rumours spread faster than the plague. All characters except Bodkin are real people playing themselves. Red James, a Scotsman who has spent time in various prisons in the UK, narrates the story.
