Pin Cushion

Pin Cushion is the heart-wrenching story of an unusually close mother and daughter, Lyn and Iona, who are excited for their new life in a new town. Iona eventually finds three “best friends” and mom feels left out, so she makes friends with a neighbor. But all is not right, and when Lyn understands what is really going on with her daughter, she figures out a way to punish her friends and keep Iona safe by her side forever.

"'Pin Cushion' is a whimsical and achingly sad story." (Emily Sears, Birth.Movies.Death)
