“I am not alive, I am a ghost.”
In a prosperous, black home, in a London suburb, lives Jacqueline, a teenage domestic slave. For years she has had no sense of herself beyond her world of servitude and confinement. She is dominated by her “Aunty” and “Uncle”, and controlled by their physical and psychological torture. Kali, a little girl trafficked from Sierra Leone, is brought into the house to be “broken in”. Her humour, kindness and love provoke subtle and fundamental changes within Jacqueline. Their separation unleashes a torrent of repressed emotion and spurs Jacqueline towards an uncertain future, but one where she dares to be in control.
