Elroy, a depressive cop with burned facial skin, is doing an investigation on a Scottish island. A teenage girl has disappeared, and her mother testifies, seemingly unaffected. The teenager reappears, in fact it is the mother who plays at being her daughter. The cop doesn’t seem to be aware of anything, too lost in his depression.
