The Girl in the RoadBook - 2014
Meena, a young woman living in a futuristic Mumbai, wakes up with five snake bites on her chest. She doesn't know how or why, but she must flee India and return to Ethiopia. Mariama, a girl from a different time, is on a quest of her own. She joins a caravan of strangers heading across Saharan Africa where she meets Yemaya, a beautiful and enigmatic woman who becomes her protector and confidante. As one heads east and the other west, Meena and Mariama's fates will entwine in ways that are profoundly moving and shocking to the core. Lyrically written with sci-fi elements, worldly but not one of culture, spiritual but sharply intelligent - the sheer originality makes it stand apart.
