We all look for ways to shed our skins from time to time, for a chance to look at the world through borrowed eyes.
On a fog-drenched November morning the Ostia Antica pushes off from the port of Genoa, bound for Buenos Aires. The year is 1902.
It is here that the story of Lydia begins, an emigrant's tale of a whimsical young woman with a desire for independence and the need to re-invent the world around her.
Told against the backdrop of Latin America at the beginning of the twentieth century, the story of Lydia braids together the old world and the new, with the ocean and the hand of fate that divides them.
From the coast of northern Brazil, through the streets of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires, Lydia wants to believe she is writing her own history. But her destiny seems designed, scripted by a street child that crosses her path during her travels and a man single-handedly responsible for the largest migration Europe has ever seen.
