A unique 128-page, textless graphic novel, in black, white and sepia, drawing inspiration from tales of migrants in past and recent times.

The central character is a middle-aged man who arrives in a strange new place and tries to find a place to live, a job and a handle on a new language. He encounters many challenges, all described entirely through visual sequences.
