Globalization seen through the eyes of the rootless and uprooted. Immigrants, refugees, outcasts, lost souls seeking shelter in Barcelona, a city of transit and transition, a backdrop to drama and epiphany as a shifting world strips humans of belief, certainty and habitual points of reference. A Guatemalan maid cut off from kin and country, an African refugee interpreting Catholic confessions, a devout Muslim girl forced to eat during Ramadan, a vagrant hounded by street punks, an American expat under police arrest, and a terrified psychologist on night patrol in Afghanistan. Lonely and adrift, in pain and out, fighting to survive even as a longing for home is trampled upon knowing they can never return. An angel of death, a bedeviled monk, a clown without a face. Twenty parables of exile and homecoming for our chaotic, homeless times.
