South-West Scotland, 2010. Air-traffic controller Helena's baby is born with unexplained paralysis. Faced with an unforgiving medical establishment, she turns to the Jewish grandmother she never knew, unfolding the past in search of answers.

Berlin, 1937. Single mother and kitchen hand Dora struggles in a city growing increasingly hostile, with questions being asked of bloodlines and identity. Will she always be alone? And how long will she and her daughter be able to call this home?

Based on extensive research into Eleanor Thom's lost family history, Connective Tissue is a story of migration, motherhood, and our need to know the people and places that make us.
