When Morvern Callar, a 21-year-old supermarket employee in Scotland wakes on Christmas morning to find her boyfriend has committed suicide on the kitchen floor, she opens his Christmas presents to her, puts on her new jacket, takes her new Walkman and goes to work. That night, she goes out with her best friend Lanna and tells everyone that her boyfriend not only left her, but has left town as well. When she goes home, she finds he's left money in the bank for her as well as his unpublished novel on a disc. She changes the author's name on the novel to hers and sends it to a publisher, after hiding his body in a cupboard. She then goes to Spain with Lanna for a holiday with the money he's left her.
