The war has ended but Fausta lives to be constantly reminded of her condition of fear. The sudden death of her mother forces Fausta to confront these fears and question the peculiar measures her mother took to protect her daughter from a similar fate. The Milk of Sorrow is the story of a search for re-awakening and a journey from fear to freedom.
