She finally confronts the bitterness and the guilt.

?This play is a true story with fictitious characters. It bares what goes on in this city?, says the playwright, Jagero. ?The society needs to understand the issues behind immorality and perversion. It lies deeper than the superficial that people see and condemn. The societal issues, I believe must be judged on people?s upbringing?.
