Added DiffLines:

* ChildrenForcedToKill: [[spoiler: Natalia's grandfather is tricked into poisoning the Tiger's Wife, since he is the only person she trusts.]] This is one of the main reasons why he becomes a doctor.


Added DiffLines:

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler: For the Tiger's Wife plotline.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MamasBabyPapasMaybe: No one knows if the Tiger's Wife's pregnancy as a result of a random rape or Luka getting drunk enough to actually do the deed. It's hard to judge which one would be worse.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWoobie: The Tiger's Wife. Not only is she mute and abused because of her disability, but she is forcibly married to Luka, a situation neither of them is happy with. Luka beats her so badly that she nearly dies at least once, and when [[spoiler: Luka is killed]] she is ostracized by the village even more than before. Regardless of how she got pregnant, the options are all pretty horrifying, and finally [[spoiler: she is poisoned by Natalia's grandfather, the only friend she had.]]

* TheYugoslavWars: Overshadow everything, although we don't hear much detail. How it affected people's daily lives and Natalia's childhood is important, but the politics, not so much.

* CityWithNoName: The country Natalia lives in, the one she visits, and the city she grew up in are never specified. All you need to know is that they used to be the same place - [[UsefulNotes/Yugoslavia the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia]].

** And considering that Natalia has the same surname as her maternal grandfather, it is unlikely that he was ever married to her mother.
