Rob Roy (1995). The true story of Robert Roy MacGregor (16711734), a hero of 18th Century Scotland, whose love for one woman gave him honour, courage and, ultimately, his life. The leader and provider for the entire MacGregor clan, Rob Roy arranges to borrow money from the Marquis of Montrose to help them survive the harsh Highland winter. However, his trust in less honourable men makes him a pawn in a ruthless plot.
