Motherhood, in all its greatness, is not enough to overwhelm the trauma of rape. While perhaps not true for all who have been victims of this crime, Sally is a testament to this, living under the shadow of this experience from such a young age.

But the biggest tragedy of her story is not the violation of her body and her innocence. The even bigger tragedy is that after growing up deprived of affection by her own mother, Lydia, Sally’s rape leaves her with scars that disable her from showering her own son with that which she craved for all her life – the love of a mother.
