Ama is a slave. She is old and dying and has an incredible story to tell. It is about violence and heartache, but it is also a story of courage, hope, determination and ultimately love. Since Ama is blind she cannot write down her story for future generations. Instead she summons the son from whom she has been separated. At first he thinks she’s old and tiresome. But as Ama’s astonishing journey unfolds in her own words his world changes forever until he can never see it with the same eyes again.
