Our childhood is never truly our own, it is shaped by the people who raise us, by social pressures we may not even be aware exist as well as whatever education we so happen to receive.
This is the story of Jo, a black South African woman born into the apartheid system and raised by her community that struggled and strived for survival. The struggles of a young woman swinging between dependence and an imagined freedom.
This is the story of her immigration to another country, her loves and her losses and the strangeness of looking at a place you know, the world that raised you, from the eyes of a foreigner.
