This is the story of Aurora, Felicia, her mom, A Day labourer, a religious hypocrite, and a bus driver.

Aurora in the end will finally discover her own history by encountering many if not all of these people, like puzzle pieces. Once all of the pieces are collected, she will discover
The land that belongs to us again.
