Tears Mean Weakness
Lola Jacobsen has always been taught that tears mean weakness. Showing your emotions in her family was forbidden. Her father, a Sergeant Major of the Army Base in which Lola has lived all of her life, has raised Lola to be strong, disciplined and soldier material. However, when Lola develops a sensitivity towards her father's confrontational ways, she decides that she can prove to him that everything he had raised her to be, was not washed away by the tears she shed.
