When you look into your mothers eyes, you know that this is the purest love you could find on this earth.

But imagine if you will, a world where that isn’t the reality. Imagine a reality where a mothers love is weaponized against you, to be used as a reward, and taken away as punishment. Where the person who is supposed to keep you safe from harm is the one causing it. Furthermore, your culture dictates that it is your responsibility as the child to love and protect your mother. But wait. Isn’t it supposed to be the other way around?

This is where we open Anak.
