    Sometimes a person passes through your world and you don't forget them. She is like that. She is crossing continents, searching for her missing child. Everyone she comes into contact with has a tale to tell: the truck driver who mistook her for a prostitute, the hunters who almost shot her, the Frenchman who loved her, the blind man and the lodger. This is her story.
