Irene's Ghost folows a son's search to find out about the mother he never knew.

Iain was 3 when his mother Irene died. His Dad never spoke about it, and the family silence around Irene meant that she was alive only in Iain's imagination, as a thistle seed or in the image of the moon.

Later in life, the birth of his own child inspires a journey to discover the truth about Irene, piercing together fragments of the past to make sense of the present. Using animation mixed with film footage, Irene's Ghost movingly rebuilds a lost life.
