Dielieno, the female protagonist in this novel,  is only five years old when she is sent to live with her harsh grandmother who is intent on bringing her up to be a good Naga wife and mother. Her grandmother does not approve of her going to school as she thinks the young girl will get wrong ideas from school. Against these odds, Dielieno struggles for her right to education and the task of precariously balancing schoolwork, housework, and all the cultural obligations that a young Angami girl is expected to know.
