Isabel's Independence


Isabel (58) left Spain and a career in business, eager to start a new life in Scotland. Working in Edinburgh as a cleaner, she longs to be part of her new community, but feels unable to express her true self. We follow Isabel as she attempts to be understood and valued, whilst also learning the Scottish language and culture surrounding her.
