Pyrrhic Victories describes a crucial period in a young girl's life when she spent every waking moment with one task in mind: to prove her mother wrong. The title itself holds true to its meaning-to achieve at considerable cost-in this interesting account of a young girl from a large family, growing up in the central city. The dedicated mom is very overprotective of her children and adamantly refuses to let them fall prey to the events that are unfolding in the underprivileged neighborhood. The story portrays the ongoing struggle between the mother and daughter. Pyrrhic Victories describes one girl's memories of desperately trying to escape her circumstances. Willing to do anything, neighborhood girls become engulfed in despair, offering their individual independence, and lives are lost.
