This is the true story of Eliska Tanzer. Born into a Romani life, her family already outcasts, she has no future and no way out. Very early on, Eliska realises that the only way she will ever be happy is to leave the place and make her way in the world through an education. So she sets in motion a chain of events that will bring her to England and take her within inches of her dreams. But the dusty road she must tread is fraught with challenges, and soon young Eliska has to face up to the brutalities of the world and her own struggle to stay alive. This is her story. A story of remarkable will, determination and desire to become a better person. A story of a girl on the brink
