Mainland tells the story of twelve-year-old Colin Macleod, who sees the world around him change fast as he realizes that the isolated island he calls home, is getting too small to chase his dreams. On the other hand there's Colin Mackenzie, an old shepherd who has returned to the island after years of wandering around. Gradually he comes to the conclusion his beloved island will never be the same.
