Description: "The Rocket Post" is a moving tale of how a remote Scottish community on the Hebridean island of Scarp became enchanted by a dashing German scientist and his plans to link them to the outside world via a rocket postal service during the late 1930s. He struggles to assemble his new invention while the quirky inhabitants look on with a combination of humour, skepticism and distrust. But, just when things might come together, the scientist is pressured by his fatherland to assist with its preparation for war.
