Dancing With Statues
Caroline Doherty de Novoa
Will our history always define us? What does it take to move on from the tragedies of our past? These are questions.
Laura has been avoiding since that day ten years ago when her mother took her own life, when Laura was just a teenager. Until she meets Miguel, a Colombian lawyer investigating a bombing that took place days before her mother’s death, towards the end of the Northern Irish “Troubles”.
Initially, Miguel's love gives her hope for a brighter future. But when he starts delving into the past, asking questions about her mother and the circumstances surrounding her death, their relationship begins to unravel and Laura is finally forced to revisit her family’s history in search of answers of her own.
