My Favourite part
So the other people in the village decide to shoot her because they think she is useless. After killing her they could take the gold and transform the village into a new place. Miss Prym tells them that taking the gold and killing Berta would prove how evil they are, with no morals. Then people decide to refuse the gold and don’t trust the stranger. But Miss Prym wants the gold for herself and tries to steal it but there are some circumstances that stop her. In the end, the stranger admits that people are neither good nor evil.
