A true story.

1974. An Armenian family fleeing a civil war, arrive in the UK with £35, a suitcase and the address of a relative. But that’s nothing new for them. They’ve already had to flee a genocide.

1976. One careless mistake. Nine months and one near fatal C-section later, Karen Mary Bedrossian is born into a perfectly fine life and grows up in a perfectly fine house in Richmond, Surrey. But inside her lies a secret deep, dark pain that rips her to shreds on a daily basis…

1994. Karen’s 18, homeless, penniless, and her only friends are a couple of heroin addicts and criminals. The solution? Start again. Become a famous pop star. Then everyone would love and admire her and she’d be whole.

Wouldn’t she?
