Lela & Co.


"In the beginning was the mattress. Gradually, other little changes - more bolts on the front door; the gun; the locked cupboard. And she knew in her heart that change was bad." 
When Lela marries and is relocated to an unnamed country in the throes of civil war, she finds herself isolated, imprisoned, and eventually enslaved. Based on a true story, LELA & CO. is one woman's harrowing battle for survival amidst a male-dominated, capitalist culture, where hope is her only companion on a desperate quest for freedom.
