Summary
Teresa, a beautiful young girl from the village who is supposed to marry a suitable man from the same community but who wants to see the world, to desire more. Vasco, a café owner who lived in America for ten years and thinks more highly of himself than he should. He is losing business to the new internet cafe down the road. A young English couple engaged to be married and confronting each others' weaknesses and idiosyncrasies for the first time. An older English woman imagining a new life, fantasizing about never returning home. The unseemly, dysfunctional but strangely riveting Potts family, ex-patriots who cobble together a life, at odds with one another until they run into trouble on the outside and then they hunker down, shut out of the world
