Synopsis

A Small Piece of Paradise is a short film that explores the reality behind some West of Scotland stereotypes. A sports loving son, a domineering father and a strong resilient mother are divided by their different experiences, and only after a ten year period can the mother bring the father and son to a meaningful understanding of each other. This eventual success makes this story a clear example of love conquering all, even in the bleakest situations.
