In the land of exotic animals, stunning beauty, of surf and history. Sam's wife, the POM was alone. No longer able to see the beauty of the land that she had learnt to call home, instead only knowing the fear of her inability to keep her husband happy. After enduring three years of beatings, the all consuming pain from the death of her baby and struggling with the desire to hurt herself in order too shut out the pain from the world she inhabited. The thoughts of escape grew slowly. The POM left her husband not because she didn't love him but because she knew that one day he would take the last breath from her body.
