Dirt Road to Lafayette

Bereaved Scottish father Tom (David O’Hara) and his teenage son Murdo (newcomer Neil Sutcliffe) take an emotional journey from the Highlands to the US, where Murdo hears zydeco (blues) music for the first time. Murdo, an accordionist, hasn’t played since the death of his mother, but that changes when he meets retired zydeco legend Queen Monzee-ay and her family. Murdo starts to play the accordion again, fusing the music of his home country with zydeco, and helping heal family wounds. Scripted by Booker-winning Scottish author James Kelman.
