In the cold, grey city no one ever seems to notice Spider Iggy. As he spins his web into beautiful and intricate designs, he dreams of a faraway land filled with colour and light. Determined to leave his ‘hohum’ life behind, brave Iggy sets out on an adventure to find the one place he can finally fit in. Home.
