Secrets, lies and unmentionable guilt. Crimes that seek their perpetrators. The ultimate sacrifice of a mother who seeks justice. In her cell, Stella tells her story. She wanders through the neighborhoods of her impoverished childhood, the shady streets of her nightmarish teens, the university amphitheaters where she sharpened her mind and her soul, determined to give value and meaning to her existence, the law courts where she was promised a brilliant legal career, and the luxurious mansion of the Moralis family where she hoped to escape her fate indefinitely, to find love, warmth and peace. Life, however, never remains unrequited. Her meeting with fate is unavoidable, and Stella is forced to choose her mirror and prove herself. She must look at her reflection and lay claim to her atonement and the hope that life has denied her.
