Watch our film online!

We are pleased to be showcased online at The Open Door Short Film Showcase. Watch the film here:

And here is a wee review from the festival: 

'We found this to be a very moving family drama, with a very powerful message, one that leaves an impression long after it has finished. Anchored by two very strong performances by the two young girls struggling to come to terms with their arranged marriages. Nice slow build, with powerful moments for each young girl as they take measures to ensure their freedom. Seems almost futile to try, but the spoon has an even bigger impact that what was initially thought. Great film from promising talent in front and behind the camera'.
