Sira is a former refugee. She speaks six languages and works as a translator for OFPRA, the French Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons, which is responsible for applying the dictates of the Geneva Convention. Unscrupulous and extremely lucid, Sira doesn't hesitate to extort huge sums of money from displaced foreigners seeking asylum in France. While the story is fictional, the dramatic fate and cruelty imposed upon refugees rejected by OFPRA are approached with great accuracy.
