After 24 long years, Clarissa has found a way to move past all the abuses and aggressions she had received from both her husband and all the men at courthouses who helped him.

This resilient story is now available in English for those sensible readers who would like to contribute by sharing the concerning matter that every 15 seconds, somewhere in the world, a woman is abused.
