Marianne van Zanten, a child psychiatrist, loses her husband in a terrible, random accident. Resolving to make a new start, she moves to Glasgow, taking on a job in a clinic where they treat disturbed children. One of her new patients, Manny, a closed and secretive 10-year old boy, has an unusual delusion: he claims to have created the world. He even claims to have invented Marianne. Marianne, deeply intrigued, begins an obsession that will derail her life. Her grip on reality begins to spiral out of control, taking her on a journey that will question the nature of existence itself.
