THREE LOTUSES IN A SEA OF FIRE:
Three women of different ages separated by religion and culture find themselves in Canada where they help one another to overcome their haunted past. Samia, from Algeria; Mliss, from Cambodia; and Manuela, from Chile, all faced political turmoil in their homeland. Yet while each upheaval was different (an Islamic armed revolution, communist-led genocide, a right-wing coup), all three soon come to realize that the struggles they have undergone are similar.
