Grace lives in Manila, Philippines while her mother works in Winnipeg. ‘Places We Go’ follows a day in Grace’s tsinelas (slippers) on an adventurous attempt to bring Nanay (mother) home on her birthday.
Vivid illustrations surround Grace, exposing the contrast between the worlds of mother and daughter. Inspired by Venzon’s cousin who was separated from her family for 10 consecutive years, ‘Places We Go’ shines a light on the tenacity of the human spirit.
