There she meets others who have made their home in the UK but are now being forced to lead their lives in the half-shadows of society.

Supported by a secretive group of activists calling themselves the Borises, Mara and her new friends flee across the moors of northern England, hoping to reach relative safety in Scotland—but Immigration Enforcement is never far behind.
