The tension between the present and the recent past emerges in the volatile relationship between mother and daughter, which comes to a boil over the issue of Sara’s paternity. Sara is desperate to know more about her father, whom Esma has assured her was a war hero. Eventually, Esma has to reveal to Sara their shared traumatic past.
