Vanda

£8.99

Set in Marseilles, this is the story of Vanda, a beautiful woman in her 30s, arms covered in tats, skin so dark that some take her for a North African. Devoted to her six-year-old son Now, they live in a derelict shed by the beach. She had wanted to be an artist; she is now a cleaner in a psychiatric hospital. Everything changes when the father of her son surfaces in Marseilles. He had left Vanda 7 years earlier, not knowing that she was pregnant. When Simon demands custody of his son, Vanda’s suppressed rage threatens to explode. The tension becomes unbearable, both parents fully capable of extreme violence.
