Plot synopsis: The Women of Lockerbie

A mother from New Jersey roams the hills of Lockerbie Scotland, looking for any remembrance of her son lost seven years ago in the bombing of Pan Am 103. She meets the women of Lockerbie, who are fighting the U.S. government to obtain the clothing of the victims found in the plane's wreckage. The women, determined to convert an act of hatred into an act of love, want to wash the clothes of the dead and return them to the victim's families. Inspired by a true story and written in the structure of a Greek tragedy, this is a poetic drama about the triumph of love over hate.
