Based on Robin Hardy's acclaimed 2006 novel "Cowboys for Christ," The Wicker Tree tells the story of Texas-based singer Beth Boothby (newcomer Brittania Nicol) and her friend Steve Thomson (Henry Garrett), two born-again Christians who come to Scotland to spread the gospel. When their initial efforts are met with disdain and disinterest, they find comfort in an invitation to sing in Tressock, the border fiefdom owned by Sir Lachlan Morrison (Graham McTavish). However, Beth's and Steve's message of personal chastity quickly comes into direct conflict with Tressock's sexual and religious practices, drawing upon ancient Celtic beliefs and rituals. Temptations begin to challenge Beth and Steve -- with the stakes no less than their very lives and souls.
