After being placed in grave danger, Tamanna has fled from her family home in Pakistan, travelled illegally across continents, spent time in the Calais Jungle, and has ended up here.
Charlie has been at a nightclub, dancing and drinking, looking for her own kind of refuge from the weight of caring for her terminally ill mum.
As Charlie emerges from the club into the night air, she sees a figure standing on the edge of a nearby bridge, and is compelled to run to them.
This is the moment Charlie’s and Tamanna’s lives entwine. As these strangers meet at a pivotal moment in both their lives, are they able to accept each other, share their truths with one another, is this a chance meeting, or fate?
Welcome to the Jungle is the epic, intensely personal tale of how two strangers came to meet each other in the middle of the night, on an empty bridge.
