“A wonderfully sustained feature debut from Philip John (Downton Abbey and Outlander), Moon Dogs is an anarchic, heart-felt coming-of-age story.”

Michael lives with his step brother (and musical genius) Thor in Shetland, a small island far north of Scotland. Thrust together by their parents’ marriage they barely talk. But when Thor ruins Michael’s chances of going to University with his girlfriend Suzy, they embark on a chaotic road trip that will push their tenuous relationship to the brink.
En route they encounter Caitlin, a wild Irish free spirit who dreams of being a singer. The boys fall in love with her and we follow their adventures on the road to Glasgow.
