This is the true story of an 11-year old girl who, after her mother died of a brain tumour, was left in charge of three younger brothers and a baby sister. Her father, unemployed and suffering from lung cancer, was addicted to morphine prescribed for his illness. His violence and swing of moods were terrifying and when she accidently knocked her mother's head the day before her death, her father accused her of murder. Haunted by guilt and fear, it was only when she became an adult that she finally sought out her mother's death certificate and absolved herself of any blame.
