Naomi lives on Aruba and from a young age her intentions are to get the best out of life. Photos hang on the wall of her bedroom that she has torn out of magazines, showing women and men looking happy. Her favourite photos are those of Martin Luther King jr., the man who had a dream, and Diahann Caroll, a black actress who played Nurse Julia in a weekly television program. Out of a newspaper she cut out letters forming the words BE HAPPY and stuck them on a page out of an old magazine. Years later she still dreams of becoming a nurse and being happy. Still, she doesn’t succeed to accomplish her dreams. Poignant events in her life have shut her down. What is hidden must remain hidden. But when her father dies, she is forced to open up her tightly closed doors.

De steun en begeleiding van Hedwig heb ik als zeer prettig ervaren. Ze is sturend maar niet alles bepalend. Jij blijft eigenaar van je tekst en die vrijheid vond ik heel fijn. Van Hedwig heb ik veel geleerd en ben erg gelukkig met het eindresultaat.
