A hip-shaking story about liberation

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.
