One time they had to move to the village, because there have been riots in the city where they live. In the village, they lived in a large old house that had long been inhabited, the house is a house inherited from their grandmother. Why do they not inhabit the house of the first. According to them, the house was too big for a small family like them. But now they are forced to move into the house, because of being pressured by circumstances.
