Then you have Karin, the spoiled, perfect daughter of the house who has no problem getting what she wants while remaining the ideal Christian virgin.

Ingeri is jealous and upset enough to want to curse Karin and her perfect life. Even Karin’s mother harbors some resentment at her daughter because of the relationship she has with her father. A trip to bring candles to...
