The routine for Miriam Frank as a child was to flee without family, except her mother, from the moment she was born in the year the Spanish Civil War broke out. Her mother was German and her father American, both of Jewish descent. She fled to France, only to flee again from the Nazis and from there to Casablanca.

Unbeknownst to Miriam until after her mother's death, her mother had kept a vivid photographic diary of her life and their flight. Frank paints a vivid and poignant portrait of a life as refugee through the colourful images of a child's eye from Collioure and Oran, to markets in Mexico's Xochilmilco, 1950s New Zealand, 1960s Israel, and modern London.
