In Lilly's Secret, loneliness and alienation have been showed through social issues such as integration, equality between men and women, abortion. Lilly belongs to a minority culture in a society that seems inclined to not accept multiculturalism. She escapes from her life for a few hours, spending the night with a stranger who belongs to the same sub-culture. This creates a paradox where the life-time partner is seen as a stranger, while she creates a connection with her one night stand. The resistance to accept multiculturalism creates a vicious circle of discrimination and prejudice, where the victims react by behaving with animosity towards other communities. Another issue shown in Lilly's Secret is the drama a woman experiences; a drama that no man can understand. Furthermore, people who are strangers to Lilly, judge her actions, pretending to know what is best for her life. This is not a matter of religion, nor about being anti or pro abortion. It's about giving the person the freedom to choose. Lilly has to deal with her decision for the rest of her life. Either outcome will damage her, leaving a strong feeling of rejection and loneliness.
