Caroline Guiela Nguyen has not seen anything of Mumbai, apart from the city's ultra-secret embroidery workshops. In this episode, she plunges us into the world of the embroiderers, holders of an ancestral know-how and often persecuted for their religion. This experience inspired her to write a new play, Lacrima, in which she explores the links between violence and secrecy.
