Two American hunters, lost in the highlands of Scotland, stumble upon a small town not listed on any map. The village of Brigadoon, by virtue of a powerful prayer, only awakens for one day out of every hundred years. One of the hunters, Tommy, falls in love with one of the townswomen, Fiona, but is afraid to give up everything he knows; she can't leave with him without breaking the spell. Back in New York, Tommy cannot forget Fiona. He returns to Scotland, where his love is so strong that he calls Brigadoon back from the mists so he can join his Fiona.
