In the form of personal notes a tale unfolds told by the author about a life which was in certain ways under siege from the day it was born. A little girl was looked on by her mother like a doll which had been typecast by society. Putting on high-heeled shoes, learning housework and trying on femininity, the little girl grew up and went out into the world like a sheep among wolves, with not the slightest idea of who she really was. All this until she took on the part she had been cast in.
