At the airport on the Outer Hebrides island of Barra, a small group of people await the delayed plane to Glasgow on the Scottish mainland. Among the local passengers is the Stranger (John Berger). He tells a long story about the North Italian peasant Bruno (Charlie Barron) on his first time visit to Venice on a weekend trip. This story within the story, about Bruno falling in love with Marietta (Lucia Lanzarini), is taken from John Berger´s own Once in Europe (published 1987).
The film moves between the meeting of the two of the inner story and the interaction of the waiting passengers of outer story, which includes a hairdresser setting off for a job on the mainland (Tilde Swinton) and a singer (Margaret Bennett). And finally the aircraft arrives.
