Articles
When Salina dies, it falls to her youngest son to tell her story, a story of violence and suffering, vengeance and passion. Exiled three times, the first time as a new-born abandoned outside a village by a mysterious horseman, Salina was taken in and raised by a clan that only ever saw her as a stranger and an enemy to be defeated. Three times a mother, her children born from strife, Salina never knew love, and revenge became her reason to live. For her to gain admittance to the cemetery, to a place of peace at last, Salina's son must face up and tell the tale of Salina's ordeals - her rape the most harrowing - in minute detail. He has no choice but to give voice to all the hardship that for years fed into Salina's rage.
