Funny, inspiring and shocking in equal measure, this gripping feature doc charts the arrival and conquest of Donald Trump’s golf course and hotel development project in an area of Special Scientific interest on Scotland’s Aberdeenshire coast.

When first proposed, the billionaire’s planning application is decisively rejected by the local authority. But in an unprecedented move the Scottish Government overturns the decision and gives the project the go-ahead – arguing the case for economic development and inward investment.

From this point on, the stage is set for an extraordinary summer of discontent.
