A woman The demons of her past A single, possibly unforgivable crime
In the idyllic hill country of Sri Lanka, a young girl grows up with her loving family; but even in paradise, terror lurks, forcing her and her mother to immigrate to America. Both love and loss fill her life, and though she thrives, her scars haunt her into adulthood making her hold on reality more tenuous. When the past and present collide, she sees no other choice than to commit her unforgivable final act. This is her confession.
