San Kyi (18) lives with his mother, widow Ei Ei Khin (45) and grandmother Ohn Kyi (70). San Kyi used to work in a garment factory and is currently out of work. Her mother was planning to marry her to Phone Shwe (40), and San Kyi did not like him. While working in the factory, San Kyi's best friend was Theint Theint Oo (25), who was also fired from her job. Since Theint would return to her hometown to work, San Kyi decided to run away with her. One day, when Grandma Ohn Kyi was ill and her mother was not at home, San Kyi gave her gold chain to Theint to sell and make money. When the grandmother was taken to the hospital, San could not contact Theint, who did not return in time.
