Comments: First half doesn't go anywhere with the 'abuse begets violence' template but the second half meanders and prolongs itself into an interesting essay on the concept of martyr: how much pain and abuse can one endure until suffering vanishes from the soul? The eye's give it away. I didn't like the conclusion but the investigation was interesting enough.

Summary: A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity
