Possession is a tale of four mother’s lives interweaving across continents and time…

Kasambayi, recently arrived in the UK from the Democratic Republic of Congo, starts her contractions on the number 38 bus at Clapton Pond, and gives the final push at Victoria. She names her daughter Hope — hope for their new life, hope for their future.
