Shell is a 2012 independent Scottish drama film directed by Scott Graham. It stars Chloe Pirrie as Shell, a 17-year-old woman who lives and works at a petrol station in the remote Scottish Highlands. The film is a broader adaptation of a previous work by Scott Graham entitled with the same name released in 2007.
Shell lives at a remote petrol station in the highlands with her father, Pete (who is epileptic). Adam (a regular customer about Shell’s age) works at the local sawmill. Pete has an epileptic fit, and Shell puts a cloth between his teeth (a popular old wive’s tale concerning epilepsy, but not recommended). When Pete returns home from taking a car to the scrapyard there is a charged encounter between him and Shell. That night, when the heating fails, Shell climbs into bed with her father.
Next morning, Hugh (a regular, older, customer) returns bearing a gift of clothing for Shell. There is another charged encounter. After Hugh leaves, Shell approaches her father again as he repairs the heater.
Adam arrives to invite Shell out. He has lost his job due to being suspected of a break-in at the sawmill. He describes some of his own family issues and says is considering setting up a similar operation to Pete’s, or working with Pete, but Pete rebuffs him. Adam and Shell drive off and have sex in Adam’s car.
