Jacqueline (Cynthia Erivo), who fled the war, lives from hand to mouth on a Greek island. Starving, she offers massages to tourists for money, steals food and spends her nights in caves. The memories of her homeland's rebellion and the violence he faced won't leave her alone. Jacqueline meets tour guide Callie (Alia Shawkat). A bond and trust grows between them, which helps Jacqueline deal with her trauma. Erivo convincingly embodies the sadness Jacqueline goes through. The film opens up Jacqueline's trauma piece by piece, in almost mysterious ways. The audience learns to understand the situation of her main character, which may not come to mind first in the Mediterranean tourist environment.
