A Note from Sian-Pierre:
My mom, like so many others, is a survivor. An immigrant to the United States, she worked in the hotel industry every day of her life for nearly 50 years. And though she raised two children alone on a small paycheck, often struggling to make ends meet, she was determined to give us a world full of opportunities.
So when she was surprisingly fired from her job at 75, I was there for her. "Duty Free" tells the story of my mom living her best life - checking off bucket list items she was never able to do while working.
This is a story of mom and son, old and young, and squeezing the most out of life at any age.
