Synopsis

Behind every face lies a story. Bobby, Sumi and TJ draw people's portraits in Leicester Square. What do they think about while they sit and wait for customers all day in this busy place? Where did they come from? Why are they there? The filmmaker explores themes of migration, memory and loss by drawing her own portrait of their lives.
