An Arranged Marriage

Anadia is born into a pure native family, those ones that always follow the rules down to the dot, she lost her sister years ago, her mother dying from the heart break, her father becoming a man she barely recognizes, it's up to her to care for her siblings, she has nothing but her music, and even that is something that is taken from her. 

Anadia needs guidance.. Wait.. Does she? She is a woman and she can take care of herself.
