Where are the limits of human sacrifice?

Where does human sacrifice come from? Where are its limits? The life of the protagonist is not a bed of roses. From dawn to dusk her day is filled with chores, her work in a plant manufacturing matches is just an episode. The woman wants to make up for her past mistakes. Together with her husband, she decides to take care of disabled Weronika. Privately, quietly, with no lofty words, she handles her everyday struggle, which is where the real sacrifice is required.
