The image of her

Velton, Sonia2021
Stella and Connie are strangers, brought together by two traumatic events - cruel twists of fate that happen thousands of miles apart. Stella lives with her mother, a smothering narcissist. When she succumbs to dementia, the pressures on Stella's world intensify, culminating in tragedy. As Stella recovers from a near fatal accident, she feels compelled to share her trauma but she finds talking difficult. In her head she confides in Connie because there's no human being in the world that she feels closer to. Connie is an expat living in Dubai with her partner, Mark, and their two children. On the face of it she wants for nothing and yet - something about life in this glittering city does not sit well with her. Used to working full time in a career she loves back in England, she struggles to find meaning in the expat life of play-dates and pedicures. Two women set on a collision course.
