Annetta, 12, feels suffocated in her small village. She believes that wearing trousers will give her freedom, but is told that "only two kinds of people in Sicily wear trousers, stupid: men and puttane." Annetta chooses the only option open to her and practices flirting secretly with a young man. She is quickly spotted while passionately kissing, dragged off by her father, and labeled a slut. Plans are made to send her to a neighboring village to live with her aunt and uncle; this is a horribly brutal plan since her uncle is a known child molester (Annetta's parents consider the arrangement to be suitable punishment for her crime).
