eight women tell their stories - using their own words - stories of the unseen fallout of the war on terror in Britain. these are stories of real women, from cultures as varied as Palestine, Senegal , Jordan, Libya, St John's Wood, and the english Midlands. they all came to the UK as refugees, or married refugees here. after 9/11 the world they loved here vanished almost overnight. One after another they were engulfed by isolation and private terror.
