La Bestia - The Train of the Unknowns



Isabel's Independence

Isabel (58) migrates to Edinburgh looking for a new opportunity. After her business in Spain collapsed following years of financial crisis, she left her husband behind with one goal in mind: saving enough money to recover. However, she did not count on so many obstacles: Brexit, the COVID-19 pandemic, her language barrier and a growing joint and muscle pain caused by her physical jobs. She cleans in the mornings and delivers in the evenings, and when she gets home she has five hours to sleep. Isabel wants to be part of the Scottish culture but how can she when she has no time to learn English, no time to socialise and when her body aches so much at the end of the day?
