In the shadows of cosmopolitan Adelaide an unborn baby is sold, this tiny child's sheer will to live is tested by the pain and suffering she is forced to endure. Through the years, life is only bearable because of her ability to play the piano, which she excels at. Her love of music transports her from the oppression and cruelty inflicted by those who vowed to take care of her. Eventually she runs away just to survive, she doesn't only survive though this is more than survival it is a victory of the human spirit. Her life is interspersed with sadness and brutality, but also great joy and a love that knows no bounds. This story will leave you breathless, a woman's fight for survival in her world of abuse, rape and murder. Hope is instilled by the courage of one human being who triumphs over evil and refuses to be beaten. Her ability to never give up and the strength to forge ahead to bring recognition for the suffering of those she loves.
