A hip-shaking story about liberation, Hula is directed by BAA’s Robin Haig, and has its TV premiere on the new BBC Scotland channel on Thursday 18th April, as part of the Next Big Thing project.
Hula is a gently humorous drama about unhappy divorcee Clara. Reluctant to engage within her Highland community, she sets up her empty-nest home as a B&B. Her first guest is an artist who introduces her to change by rearranging the bedroom feng shui style. Next, a pair of elderly tourists painfully remind her of the joys of love. Finally a hillwalker, as lonely as she is but not nearly so stuck, initiates an evening of unexpected hilarity which spurs her onwards to a new, ultimately more promising phase in her life.
Catch Hula on BBC Scotland at 23.30 on Thursday 18th April, or on BBC iPlayer here
