The waiting room of the tiny Barra airport in the Hebrides. Passengers are waiting for a flight to Glasgow which has been delayed. A teacher stretches her legs, a hairdresser chats to a motorbike rider about her new job on the mainland and he tells her that he is on his way to watch a football match at the weekend. The local electrician arrives with horse and cart to repair the television set in the waiting room. A stranger enters from the beach who seems to know the electrician. He sits down with the waiting passengers and begins to teil stories. The passengers notice him, gather round and begin to listen intently to the following story ... When the story is over, the aeroplane arrivee and the passengers get up to move towards the plane. The electrician takes the television set with him on his cart: on the screen: we see the last glimpse of images of Venice...
