Having a "Cain & Abel" relationship with her brother, after the death of her mother, Paula Chongoene decides not to go back to Mozambique. She moves from Portugal to the Netherlands, in search of a more open society. Soon after learning Dutch, Paula realizes that things are not as open and tolerant as they are sold to be yet believes that sooner or later someone will acknowledge her skills and university degree. Would she be better off as a refugee rather than someone who's looking for the "American dream" in the Netherlands? Would going back to Portugal and remaining in underpaid jobs whilst possessing a Master's degree and speaking four languages, be the best option rather than returning to Mozambique?
A gripping story of a foreign student/immigrant who constantly reinvents herself in order to avoid what she believes to be circumventable obstacles.
