written by Sasha DamjanovskiSANYA is trying to sort out the chaos her life has become. The bank is knocking on the door of her recession-troubled gift shop; her husband, MILES, is divorcing her because he is in love with another man, and now her beloved dad has suffered a stroke.
But, flying back home to Macedonia is a very mixed bag of emotions. Here are the magical things she has almost forgotten – the irresistible taste of the food, the awesome beauty of the mountains. But here too are the sick father, over-controlling mother, the old flame who wants to leave his wife for Sanya, the tempting financial venture with an old friend who has a dodgy business track record… Miles flying in to help only makes things worse, since Sanya has never even told anyone that she got married, let alone that she’s now divorced.
To sort out the mess, Sanya first has to answer the questions she hates the most. Who is she? Where does she belong? Are her roots her strength or her biggest hindrance? And, what’s the price of being a modern woman?
