The main character of the story is dissatisfied with life because she does not receive love and protection from her parents. Denied of affection and lacking proper mentoring she has an unhappy marriage. The story conveys that understanding human relationships and intangible notions such as love, responsibilities and care, are essential qualities for human life. They are human ideologies that extend beyond mere transactions.
