Profile Picture

After years of sexual abuse and an abortion caused by her father, Liga is tired and always afraid. When she conceives another baby, her father dies, leaving her in peace. However, some of the village boys track her down after the birth of her child, and attempt to rape her. At this point, she runs to the mountains to commit suicide. But, she is interrupted by a celestial being, who makes a deal with her. Liga carries out the terms, and awakens in her own heaven. Things go well for a while, and she has another child, but even the gates of heaven cannot keep out the evils of earth.
