Liya’s past is troublesome—her mother was killed by her father, and she herself was beaten by him many times—and she spends her adult life attempting to cope with her memories. To cut the vicious circle of violence in the village of her childhood, where domestic violence is considered “normal”, Liya returns to her former home to awaken the villagers and establish new relationships among people.
