In this elegiac and vibrant tale of a city, Mofe and Rosa are two strangers hustling, moving and shaking towards dreams of a better life on distant shores. When tragedy and hardship threaten to choke their future, they’re forced to reconcile with the more immediate realities of life at home. A beautifully considered and lyrical debut.
