Juxtaposing scenes of life in Berlin with memories of Cameroon as well as with recent impressions of the protagonists who visit their former home country while residing abroad, the reader is drawn into the heartfelt and compelling narrative which does not only provide plenty of local colour but also does not shy away from providing a political background to the decisions the characters have to make.
