Mannis is a girl- an amnesiac, an anti-hero, a revelatory, who experiences a warped fairy-tale world in which she becomes the vigilante Queen. Girl takes us on a journey through surreal landscapes in a series of dreamlike flashbacks to Ireland, France, Spain, Oman, Morocco and The Empty Quarter. Mannis kills three men in revenge attacks and cuts out their hearts. She travels South and buys three jewelled caskets in Fez. One for each heart. She lives in isolation as a voluntary mute in the Sahara desert. It is from here that she begins to recall events that ultimately lead to her transformation.

Finally, she finds the sacred ground where she can bury her hearts, perform her alchemy and build a shrine to the future. Managing to change her identity and avoid capture, she wanders for years, searching for her lost child. Celtic mythology, alchemy and poetry collide in this tale of lost innocence and a girls struggle for freedom from violent desires and bloody colonialis
