In a nearby field encampment, a detachment of the Royal Engineers working on the first British maps of the area are recording the local Gaelic place names and rendering them into English. This simple bureaucratic action of the colonizers has far-reaching personal and cultural effects on the small group of the hedge-school. A love that transcends language and logic finds its way into this beautifully stirring tale.
