AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Two wildly different sisters, Menan, shy and conservative and Rita, outgoing and unpredictable, haven't spoken in years. Now in hospital with a life threatening illness, Menan looks back on a life full of regret and lost opportunities when out of the blue, the outrageous Rita shows up, turning everything on its head.'
