Description: All it takes is a single act of defiance… pivoting on Reyna, a single mother in Harlem and her eccentric aunt Kiki, this is a story spanning a generation that links seemingly unconnected people in the US, Turkey and Germany.

Woven through this intricate tapestry of lives is a compassionate portrayal of human fallibility and the possibility of redemption for its many and varied narrators.
