Over the course of one day women and men, young and old, work in a fig orchard under the watchful eye of the foreman. They are restless and eager in the summer heat, stealing away from work to catch up, gossip, and flirt.

Each encounter is ripe with discovery and connection. Sun-dappled and sensual, Erige Sehiri’s fiction debut captures the strength of sisterhood, promise of young love, and the sorrows of life with remarkable intimacy and tenderness.

'An understated and intimate story of sisterhood' - Lovia Gyarkye, Hollywood Reporter
