Escaping a prison sentence by the skin of his teeth, the wayward and disillusioned small-time criminal and new father Robbie (Paul Brannigan) is given one last chance to turn his life around. Together with friends he makes a trip to the Highlands where he discovers that turning to drink - in this case fine malt whisky - might just change his life. The title of the film refers to the tiny percentage of whisky that is lost to evaporation when a cask is opened, a metaphor that applies to the scant number of people in Robbie's situation who manage to escape the grim lot that life has dealt them. Written by Paul Laverty ("My Name is Joe", "Sweet Sixteen", "The Wind That Shakes the Barley"). Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
