Point of View
Third Person

- Family is the principal institution for the socialization of children. It must work as a whole to be called as such.

- One of the most abrasive part of a married life is still being too controlled and too protected by parents.

Still being under the roof and custody of the Cabadings, Leonardo and his wife planned their escape. As Leonardo found out how manipulative his father-in-law was.

Leonardo married Lydia. The couple spent their first months in the house on Zapote Street. The head of the family, Pablo, was a policeman. The father-in-law was very strict with his house rules. Leonardo then realized why his wife was always hysterical. Leonardo was at his limit so he decided to leave. He successfully escaped, along with his wife, from Pablo. But they returned to the house because Pablo requested to see Lydia again. Unfortunately, the couple were murdered inside the house by Pablo. Pablo then committed suicide after hurting his wife, killing his son-in-law and his very own daughter.
