Their lives were simple and peaceful, but the constant gossip about Ba was the topic of the village. Ba was mocked and belittled openly for being different.
In his naivety, Hung blamed himself for his uncle’s unhappiness. He hatched a plan to right everything.
He had Ba’s best interests at heart, yet his decision only led them to tragedy.
