"Speak to me, Berivan, say a word to me" Sirvan begs. his suffering, silent beautiful wife. In his desperation he begins to hit her. Through their love they have become the loneliest people in the world, for they are strangers in their own clan, on account of family feuds originating in turn in tribal enmity. Berivan came as a bride into Sirvants family. His father proudly refused to believe that there could ever be peace between his and her family. This is even proven by the re-conciliatory gesture of Berivan's marriage to Sirvan. Berivan has three times given birth to a dead child and ceased talking three months ago...
