The Silver Darlings is a 1947 British film about Scottish fishermen, based on a 1941 novel by Neil M. Gunn.
The film is set in the early 19th century and after the highland clearances. Catrine and her family, like many other dispossessed Scots, turn their hands to Herring fishing (the so-called Silver Darlings of the title). Catrine's husband is press-ganged into the Royal Navy and dies at sea. Catrine is left widowed with a young son to raise.
After some time, Roddy proposes to Catrine, but her son Finn, now older, is very upset about the engagement and everyone is trying to avoid conscription into the Royal Navy.
