Gisela leaves behind her entire life in Spain – her family, her village, and her boyfriend – to attend university in Helsinki, Finland. There Gisela hopes to forget about her past and reinvent herself with new friends, a new look, and a new lease on life.
But Gisela quickly learns that becoming someone different isn’t as easy as she assumed. Her friends may not like the real her but only the persona she has invented, and there is only so long she can keep up the lies. It becomes harder when her boyfriend unexpectedly arrives in Helsinki and her past comes rushing back to haunt her.
Can Gisela ever shape her life the way she wants to? Will she even like the person she’s become?
