In A Small Piece of Paradise, Scottish actor Stephen McCole, star of Orphans, The Acid House and more recently the American hit, Rushmore plays Stuart a young man tortured by his past, coming to terms with the life and death of his father.
A Small Piece of Paradise is a short film that explores the reality
behind some West of Scotland stereotypes. A sports loving son, a
domineering father and a strong resilient mother are divided by their
different experiences, and only after a ten year period can the mother
bring the father and son to a meaningful understanding of each other.
This eventual success, and the remarkable quality of this connection
despite the father's death, makes this story a clear example of love
conquering all, even in the bleakest situations.
