I Know Where I’m Going! is a romantic and lightly comedic drama and an exploration of contrasting cultural values. The story follows a confident young woman from Manchester, whose plans to travel to the island of Kiloran to be married to an older wealthy industrialist, are frustrated by bad weather. Having to wait out the winds, the rain, and the fog, Joan comes to find herself in the fine company of a small friendly group of locals on the Isle of Mull. Meeting Torquil, a charming naval officer, Joan attempts to quash her feelings for her new friend by bribing a young boy to make the trip before the weather clears, with nearly disastrous results (Klaus Ming December 2013).
