Moristoun is a black comedy that pokes fun at modern society and examines how bleak life as a Scot can be in the 21st century. Join McSorely as he makes a journey to Scotland's most mysterious island. To become a permanent resident here, you have to take your own life but McSorely has yet to push ahead with the act, having been brought back from the brink by Buchan, Moristoun's top lawyer. After living on this cursed island for over 200 years, Buchan finds out he may be able to move to a higher realm by stopping modern-day Scots from pushing ahead with suicide. But his plan to boost McSorely's self-esteem by handing him a job as his legal assistant threatens to backfire when McSorely falls in love with the barmaid of the local pub, the Tortured Soul. Gail is the only other mortal in Moristoun, having been brought there as a baby when her mum died by suicide, but she risks becoming a permanent resident along with McSorely as he becomes infatuated with her. Only Buchan can save both Gail and McSorely from this terrible fate but can he get there in time?
