Iain’s mother Irene died when he was three. Nobody knew what caused it, only that there was some sort of complication after his birth. His dad never spoke about it and remarried soon after. As a child she was alive only in his imaginative world, as a thistle seed or in the image of the moon. When his own child is born, he breaks the silence and tracks down Irene’s friends to rebuild a picture of a lost life.
