Heather Agyepong portrays Maddie's dilemmas as a modern woman of two worlds: her current one, England, and the one her parents emigrated from, Ghana. Agyepong is a soft voiced, melodious narrator who brings across the intersectionality of identity that children of immigrants confront. She captures the turbulent experience of an adult child who is dealing with a parent's illness. Maddie's father's descent into Parkinson's triggers a self-reckoning that sends her down unexpected avenues of the past. Agyepong makes this self-exploration sympathetic and heartfelt. Her gently delivered, nuanced performance will make listeners feel as though they are listening to a friend describe her latest problems.
