I don’t know where to start from. I was talking to the mother of a drug-using prostitute, who was kicked to death by a policeman. No, not from here. I talked to a woman, who knew that her daughter Tanya is sick and there was nothing she could do about it. She saw Tanya doing her best to live on, but failing again and again. She wanted her daughter to live and to return home every day. Yes, this is a right place to start from. All the rest are stereotypes of no relation to this story.
