For Veronica Dyas, losing everything was just the beginning. In a hilarious and moving account of her trek across the Camino de Santiago, she mines the personal for the political and discovers what we really need to own, to live, and to love.

On reaching the end of the Camino, she knew that everything had to be different. She returned to a house that was never really her home, 100k in negative equity with mortgage arrears* and a year to the day later, handed her keys to an estate agent and became an unlikely landlord.

In a moving and quietly explosive hour, Veronica lays bare her own position in our high rents housing crisis, in which people die on our streets and more than one in three of those sleeping in emergency accommodation is a child. HERE & NOW (i live here now) traces, often hilariously, her tumultuous journey from social housing through private ownership and while attempting to navigate new spiritual terrain, asks what do we really need to live HERE & NOW?
