Abstract:

While driving through Archway in the course of his job as a medical rep, Chris, an unhappily-married, middle-aged Englishman, is captivated by a young Serbian woman on a street corner. Clumsily, he engages her in conversation, and he secures an invitation to return one day for a coffee. His visits become more frequent and Roza starts to tell him the story of her life, drawing him increasingly into her world, from her childhood as a daughter of one of Tito's partisans, through her journey to England and on to her more recent colourful and dangerous past in London.
