When I, My Own Daughter is a story about a young woman coming of age, who is struggling to come to terms with her life and the legacy her mother left her. She traces her own history from the time she was born to the death of her mother, which comes about as static dialogue articulated to different narratees, generating communication gaps while voicing the dynamic of sisterhood in oppression. Oftentimes they are one and the same but at times they serve juxtapositions: reality v. dreams; and that of the experienced and the innocent. In an ocean of symbols and metaphors, When I, My Own Daughter attempts to speak of domestic abuse without necessarily being abusive; it attempts a suicide without being suggestive nor suicidal; it means to talk about rape without being violent; it implies incest without breaking taboos. But most of all, it is a love story like none other.
