What makes a home for you?
Victor Esses is Jewish-Lebanese, Brazilian, and gay. In 1975, Victor’s mother fled Lebanon as a refugee of the Civil War. In 2017, Victor visited Lebanon for the first time. In 2018, amidst the elections that will see Brazil choose a far-right president, he travels from London to São Paulo to show his partner the city of his childhood.
Where to Belong is the tender, moving autobiographical story of Victor’s journeys – an exploration of how to find your place in a rich and complex world of identities.
