Awkward Iona (Lily Newmark) and her cat-obsessed, hunchbacked mother Lyn (Joanna Scanlan) arrive in a new town, optimistic about their chances for starting a new life. At school, Iona finds herself in the sights of a vicious group of girls, brazen bullies who immediately see an opportunity to take advantage of her naïvety and desire for companionship other than her mother’s. Meanwhile, Lyn’s own attempts to make friends — and her subsequent quest to retrieve the ladder which she has lent her neighbor — have similarly pathetic results. Both mother and daughter seek comfort in fantasy, letting their delusions fuel real-world decisions with tragic consequences.
PIN CUSHION marks the feature film debut of British shorts filmmaker Deborah Haywood.
