The film, The Devil’s Plantation, retraces the wanderings of an archaeologist and a patient from a mental institution who frequently but unknowingly interweave across each other’s paths through Glasgow’s “oldest mystery”. Advertisements
The story continues with a semi-fictional look at Glasgow’s arcane history as old man Mackail explains the history of the Sighthill Stone Circle, and starts to reveal its hidden secret to a confused narrator.
Using Glasgow’s stone circle and streets to explore an old idea that if you walk a city enough you will discover hitherto unseen streets, immortal historical characters, vanishing gardens and parallel realities. (With apologies to Poe, Machen, Sinclair, etc!)
