Stone of Destiny
Directed By: Charles Martin Smith
Written By: Charles Martin Smith

Based on the true story. In this engaging caper set in 1950, four young Glasgow University students hatch an audacious plot to sneak into London’s Westminster Abbey to retrieve the Stone of Destiny, the ancient Coronation Stone of the Scots.

Scotland.  1950.  With Scots nationalism waning under the weight of Britain’s rule, four university students, led by IAN HAMILTON, make a dramatic gesture to reawaken their country’s pride. Despite having little money and even less experience, they cunningly break into Westminster Abbey in the wee hours of Christmas morning and “liberate” that most powerful symbol of Scotland’s nationhood—The Stone of Destiny. Although they are finally captured, and the Stone taken back to London, their mission renews Scottish pride and the call for independence.
