She supports her father and two siblings, but receives nothing but ingratitude. The only man in her life marries her sister, her brother refuses all responsibilities to the family when he completes his education, and her father prevents her marriage for fear of losing his only source of income. Eventually she dies of tuberculosis, sad and lonely, apparently loved only by her dog.
