The Screen Guide

In 1988 the oil rig, Piper Alpha, exploded killing 167 men. Only 62 survived. Families were left in tatters and yet the oil company responsible was never held accountable. Ten years later we follow the very personal journey of survivor Ed Punchard, as he leaves Australia returning to Scotland to confront the demons that have haunted him all these years.
