Description

When Alis s parents reveal that she has been chosen to marry a man of forty, she is distraught how can such an unnatural marriage be right? She abandons her life in the oppressive community where she has been brought up and flees to the city in search of freedom, only to find herself caught up in events beyond her control. Will Alis's decision to defy her parents have fatal consequences, not just for her, but for everyone who tries to help her, including the boy she loves?
