The translator child

H. is eleven years old, a sweet and studious girl who should worry about going out with friends, favorite singers, the latest movies, but instead became the translator of a broken family.

Carefully she conveys to me what has happened today, with the utmost concern not to forget anything.

“The police left our house minutes ago. They pushed the women around, my grandmother ….
My grandmother said: you arrested my son and he is innocent.

H. Stops, she listens to what her mother is saying.
“Mum says to tell you what Grandma said …
They  were many
She will send you the videos …”
