All her life Kamila had wanted to find her birth family. She hoped that retirement would give her the much needed time but a prognosis of incurable cancer put paid to that. They say that curiosity kills the cat but not in Kamila’s case – it keeps her alive. As her own future shuts down, the past, that she had half-heartedly researched until she realised that death is imminent, begins to open up. She discovers that her parents come from Switzerland and India. And that’s just the beginning.
This is the story of one woman’s quest for her origins – and some of the unexpected insights that lit up her path.
