Semret is an Eritrean single mother who works at a Zurich hospital. When her teenage daughter pressures her to learn more about her origins, Semret refuses confrontation. But in order not to lose everything she loves, she will be forced to confront her past.

I found my protagonist through personal encounters and research: Semret is made up of many stories, she is fictional, but her individual parts are real. And Lula Mebrahtu has brought her to life.
