The Storm Makers Conversation Starter: Aya describes abuse at the hands of her Malaysian “owner,” summarizing the indignities by saying, “I was no longer a human being.” Yet, she reports that he was praying for his mother when she ran away. What conditions make it possible for one human being to de-humanize another, while having seemingly normal relationships with other people in his life?

For more prompts for discussion, take a look at the The Storm Makers Discussion Guide.
