‘Joy’ is the name her mother gave her about 18 years ago, when she bundled up her little baby girl and left her on a bench to be found. And since about that time, Joy has been on an odyssey through Amsterdam’s high-rises and shelters, to its slum dwellers and social workers. An odyssey to find her place in life, to find love, to find her mother. Or is she better off without her?
