    Like the need to get lost when what mattered most is lost.

    Like the need to rebuild a new world when everything around is a heap of ruins.

    Like the ghosts who live together with the living.

    New Orleans, Louisiana: one day was enough for Katrina to wipe out an entire city. One gesture was enough for him to choose to leave her for another woman.

    So she ends up wandering around the city even more wounded, dispossessed and astonished, with a story not to be forgotten and a new one to begin.
