When Kim bursts out from her hiding place in sheer terror, her uncle grabs her and punishes her by taking a lit match to her genitals and buttocks.
There she lives as a caged animal in a crib that is so small that she is not even able to stretch out her small limbs. Six months later, Kim is adopted, sight unseen, by an older, childless Baptist fundamentalist couple in California.
