Griet’s family shares that same philosophy; they yearn for something they don 't have access to. Because of that Griet is forced out of her childhood and suddenly becomes the breadwinner of the household; her identity changed before she could even understand what it meant. On her way to the Vermeers, Griet reminisces about being a child in a tone which implies that that time has already passed, even though she still would be considered a child, “[We] used to sit along the canal and throw things in… and
