    Sive is in love with Liam Scuab, a man who has her desires and needs at the centre of his heart. On the other hand, Thomasheen enforces that Sive should ,without any kind of disagreement, marry Sean Dota, an old, haggard and decrepit man).
    In the middle of all this selfishness and greed is Sive, who lingers quietly somewhere in the background sobbing her heart out. She has no hope and no choice she must marry Sean Dota.
    The only option she foresees is to escape all this madness. She commits suicide and in this way a beautiful desirable young woman is as it were murdered by the society of power-hungry individuals. She ultimately drowns in this world which soaked every last drop of her humanity dry.
