She believes that she is being badly behaved and will go to hell for her actions. Sadly her teacher and classmates reiterate the messages that she is a bad girl who must be punished.
When a natural disaster strikes resulting part of her village destroyed and some local residents losing their lives, Tina is struck with utter terror, hiding out in the cottage, believing the darkness is actually her being taken to hell.
Fortunately hope is found in friendship the unusual combination of the wonderful Mrs Lily and former renegade Kenneth but can Tina find faith in the God who, for years she has resented for not protecting her?
