Life is not always a bowl of cherries. As the world we live in becomes more complex, we face new challenges, unforeseen and almost unimaginable only a generation ago. Yet for those living in oppression, little changes with time. Jacob Barak was born and raised in Burundi where Evildoers treated members of his tribe as immoral beings. Yet as a young boy, he was full of joy and optimism. As he grew and his horizons widened, he saw the injustice his people were subjected to. He witnessed firsthand soldiers and civilians pounding their country fellows with sledgehammers and rocks or stabbing them with butcher knives and bayonets. Soldiers and cops could just kill innocent people, burying many others alive. Some of the killers were his schoolmates, classmates, neighbors, or friends. Others were their parents or siblings.

She epitomized the joy he had lost a link to his homeland, a friend, a lover, and a mother to his future children. Little did he know that she would only bring misery to his life. Always a free spirit, she soon brought his old enemies into his life, threatening his family but also his very life. Jacob decided to end the upsetting games by chasing demons from his house. And you, how far are you prepared to go in order to fulfill your dreams?He forgot that he had not engaged the park brake on a manual transmission up hill.
