“17 minutes. That’s how long it takes to die by train. I looked it up once.”
Chilufya – you can call her Chili – doesn’t know whether she is coming or going. Which makes perfect sense since her name literally means ‘the lost one’ and lost is exactly how she has felt most of her life. While searching for herself, she finds Paul. His increasingly dangerous influence over her life soon becomes so far-reaching, she loses herself completely. Zambian storytelling fuses with spoken word theatre in this dark comedy exploring the connection between cultural identity, coercive control and mental health.
