Jacqueline, a young Liberian woman, has found sanctuary on a Greek island. By day she walks the tourist-clogged beaches offering foot massages; by night she sleeps in a cave. She is plagued by constant nightmares of Charles Taylor’s brutal regime and its equally bloody downfall. She is safe, an escapee, a survivor, but she is also alone, destitute and down to her last. As she navigates her new home, hungry and weary, fending off the threats of Senegalese hawkers and avoiding the suspicious eyes of policemen who might deport her, she gradually learns to trust others, confront her past and overcome her guilt about being alive.
