On 1st January 1919 the HMY Iolaire sank in Stornoway Harbour, killing over 200 servicemen on the final leg of their journey home from war. What effect does this event have on the life of an imaginary survivor, Tormod Morrison, who twenty years later struggles to cope with the death of his daughter and its impact on her two children, Alasdair and Rachel?
