This work is inspired by the story of one woman's experiences of picking wild mushrooms. Her journey into the forest brings back fond memories of her grandmother gathering food, traditions of cooking in her village and the stories passed down through generations of her family. While the central character is far from her mother country, her memories of her past still haunt her.
