A humorous, and sometimes poignant, account of a romantic reunion in Dubai, a city of great beauty and great wealth. What Kara is expecting is a magical Arabian holiday in the United Arab Emirates, making up for lost time in the arms of an old flame; what Kara finds is an ex-boyfriend involved in the murky underworld of escort agencies and forged documentation. She discovers the Dubai that hides behind the bright lights and the grand architecture; a country where prostitution is rife and where exploited foreign laborers live in abject poverty. This 'tongue-in-cheek' novella is a true account, only the names have been changed. The story begins and ends with the boyfriend, Legion, or Leg for short. When he abandons Kara, she finds herself Legless and confined to his apartment, knowing that if the authorities discover her, she won't have a Leg to stand on.
