Set in the present day Western Isles. A man tries to build for his future by reconnecting with his past, leaving behind the ruins of the life he has lived. Iain Martin hopes that by returning to his Hebridean roots and embarking on a quest to reconstruct the ancient family home, he might find new purpose. But as Iain begins working on the old blackhouse, he uncovers a secret from the past, which forces him to question everything he ever thought to be true.
Who can he turn to without betraying those to whom he is closest? His ailing mother, his childhood friend and his former love are both the building - and stumbling - blocks to his new life. Where do you seek sanctuary when home has changed and will never be the same again?
