57Âº North is a poignant insight into the traditional island lifestyle of John Jo MacDonald, a 67 year old fisherman who has worked the sea his whole life off the remote island of South Uist in The Outer Hebrides. We witness how John Jo's way of life is under threat from environmental issues outside of his control. Full of character and Celtic charm, 57Âº North gives a large voice to a humble fisherman who's opinions are based on experience and not just fishing quotas.
