Siwar is 15 years old. Medical reports confirm that her life as a woman is condemned forever. Today, she wishes to take revenge on her mother and step-father, who will soon be released from prison, with a new trial, the first of its kind in Tunisia, where she lodged a complaint for human trafficking against them. Her mother and step-father forced her to prostitute, and tortured her from the age of 6 to 8, yet justice was too lenient with them.
