Benedicte Meyer Kroneberg
Where It Burns

B. lives in Singapore and works at a shelter for women who have fled from their employer. They have arrived in the country looking for a better life, but the working conditions are demanding, and for many, life has become a nightmare. We follow B. over the course of a dramatic day, both for herself and for the women, balancing precariously between safety and danger.

An intense depiction of happiness and misfortune. Where It Burns is a disturbing novel about modern slavery and personal responsibility.
