In an African city, a nameless young woman living in the wards slowly
begins to lose her identity: her skin color is peeling off, people are
becoming invisible, and the city plans to destroy the train where they
bury their dead. After the narrator is given a warning by her
grandmother’s dreamskin, things begin to fall apart. Struggling to hold
onto a fluctuating reality, she prescribes herself insomnia in a
desperate attempt to save her family.
