Saskia de Coster

Saul is Saskia and Juli’s son. His biological father is Karl, Saskia’s best friend. Saul is one year old when they decide to visit Karl in Canada. Together they travel to the hippie island where his family resides, where the wind of freedom still seems to blow.

They end up in a Wi Fi-less world, where nature rules and the inhabitants share a painful secret about Karl. Everything in Saskia’s life is put under pressure: her relationship with Juli, her friendship with Karl and her being a writer. And more and more, she struggles with ties she has with her own son. Is she really a mother considering she is not a biological mother? Can you learn being a parent? And how does her relationship with her son hold up, Saul is her very own but then again, he isn’t.
