Overview

Saliha sat on her bed all night long and pushed her memory hard to find a secret which belongs to her. A secret that had remained buried in the marshes of her mind for years, a tragedy that had happened to her, an illness nobody knew, a crime she had committed… Something that would make her different from the others. But it didn’t happen. No matter how hard she tried she could not find anything she was searching for.

Everything was over and done within the silence that disrupted her sleep. Only the moon was a witness, and Saliha… She was just one of those. Those who waited patiently, who scrammed, who stayed behind and who took to the roads.
