In 1993, Iza and Jemal’s only child Dato went to war in the Russian occupied territory of Abhazia. He suffered from PTSD and took his own life at 25, shortly after returning home. Young Dato managed to leave a mark on the other boys in his neighbourhood. As their unofficial mentor, Dato helped the boys with their homework, and taught them to stand up to peer pressure during a major drug epidemic. For Dato’s funeral, the neighbourhood gave Iza + Jemal a book of poems in his honour. Iza keeps this book with her at all times.
