"The kilt in question was worn by Mac, a Scottish soldier in North Africa during WWII, but is now worn by his grandson Tom as part of his "exotic dance" routine at a gay strip joint. When Mac dies, Tom's holier-than-thou, Highland-dance-teacher mother, Esther, tracks him down at work only to discover his true vocation. Aghast, she, nevertheless hauls him off to Glasgow for the funeral where even more skeletons come dancing out of the closet: Why has the elderly gentleman, David, come for the funeral and what was his real relationship with his pal, Mac, 50 years ago? How did Tom's father really die? What is true in Esther's view of the past and what's fabricated? Will the hidden truths tear this frightfully dysfunctional family asunder or actually help stitch it back together?"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
