Two strangers, alone and far from home on Christmas eve meet and make a connection.
With this being my last Christmas in the Northern Hemisphere for the foreseeable future I have been thinking about people voluntarily displaced from their homes and families. While living in London we used to call ourselves Christmas Orphans and build a tribe around us for the holidays.
I wanted to write something about two people making a connection in a foreign country. The setting is based on the Spicy Crabs Noodle Restaurant on Temple Street in Hong Kong and the characters are based on two people I know.
I hope you like it.
