Samaya left Shusha together with her family before the Armenian army moved in. Her son volunteered to serve at the front in order to defend his home, staying there even though she begged him to go with her. He was reported missing on 8 May 1992, and his fate is still not known. Her husband and daughter have also since died, leaving her alone. When she dies she hopes to meet her family again in the next life.
