Synopsis: We are three sisters: Sapho, Slavica and me. Sapho is the youngest, she has the modern day disease- seeing many men just to avoid being alone, or at least to escape from this horrible country. Me, Afrodita, I am her twin sister; born before her. I don’t talk. Slavica, our elder sister, is 35 and has been seeking Methadone treatment for 9 years. She is fine. Together we take care of the house. We live in Titov Veles. There is a lead factory that Tito had built- it pollutes everything. I live in a community that is slowly dying, and I wonder when my turn will come. Our parents aren’t here- well, our father died right after our Mother left. Now it’s Sapho’s turn to leave. She spends most Mondays waiting outside the Greek embassy in Skopje. She says she’s almost there.
