From a conversation with Maria, age 25, outside the central railway station:

"Where are you from?”
"I don't know."
"Where were you born?"
"I don't know."
"You don't know where you were born?"
"No, it was in the backseat of a moving taxi. My mom had one contraction and then I was out. It was in Spain."
….

"You were stabbed 40 times?"
"Yeah, I knew these two girls and we were drinking at their apartment. I went to the bathroom to throw up and when I came out they stabbed me 40 times."
"Why?"
"Because I'm not Finnish.”
