Bannan is the first Gaelic drama to be made since the 1990s. Produced by Chris Young (The Inbetweeners) on a small budget, Bannan sees lawyer Mairi MacDonald returning to the island which she deserted eight years ago; having left to escape her family, the customs of the place and the feeling of claustrophia she felt there.
