A budding Scottish film producer tries to get his ambitious Aberdeen-set Western financed. He attracts some major stars and directors to the film, but finds that with their support come more and more script changes. Filmed around the 1977 Edinburgh Film Festival, Long Shot is a deadpan satire about the trials and tribulations of British independent filmmaking, with terrific cameos from Wim Wenders, Susannah York, Stephen Frears, Alan Bennett and John Boorman.
