“You’re an octopus. All mixed up, like me. One leg something, and one leg something else.”

In a dystopian near-future, three women are called into a government office to be assessed for their ‘right to British life’. Sara looks kinda Asian, Scheherazade kinda Middle Eastern, and Sarah is kinda white and has no idea why she’s here.
