BENYF is a published author whose vision is to add her voice to the voices of the African Diaspora globally, predominantly on the issues of vulnerability, self-discovery, humility, feminism, and empowerment.
Evindi Moto, a German-Cameroonian Programmer, has traveled a great distance in order to visit his family in the United States, but his arrival doesn’t offer the easy comfort he’d hoped it would. As he struggles to assimilate and to build long lasting memories, he finds himself moving farther and farther away from the memorable vacation he envisioned.
Lonely days traversing the unfamiliar streets of New York City lead him on an unexpected journey as he encounters strangers struggling with troubles of their own. From Akinbode, a Yoruba warrior, to a girl with luxurious hair with a heavy past, turmoil and identity crisis are a part of the rendezvous. The turbulence in their lives begins to create waves in his, and he’s compelled to aid in any way he can.
Evindi Moto's curiosity takes him through uncharted territories that raise the stakes significantly for him and his new acquaintances. Will the unexpected twists help or hinder them as they break past the roadblocks placed in their way?
