Sophie goes to her sexual phobia group. There are two other girls in the group with her. At the end of the meeting, they each write the name of their abuser on a sheet of paper and burn it. Sophie realizes she no longer feels guilty about burning her mother's name. She knows that her own pain and her mother's were only links in a long chain of pain.
