Two intertwined monologues about womanhood and immigration merge, coalesce and diverge. Camille transfers to London and finds herself following a well-travelled road. She left her country to grow, yet her reality slowly narrows. When complications with her baby arise, she needs to engage with the society that has welcomed her. Naysam arrives at 17 in France as a foreign student with a suitcase filled with books – thinking she will finally live the stories of her favourite fictional characters. But the reality of immigration documents, economic and social survival quickly take the best of her.
