Movie to watch by every person who respects themselves!!!!
This movie is one of the few movies that made a huge impression on me in all aspects! It's about one of the biggest world problems that unfortunately is not shown to a wide public. It's not a usual storyline with famous Hollywood actors, movies of which usually have entertaining character. This movie is for intelligent audience, who wants to know about world problems and develop themselves as humans, in order to understand many things that happen in this world. The storyline of this movie is very emotional, honest, without any special effects etc. It shows the reality side of some society, whose women suffer from stupid traditions. And because of which a lot of women do not develop as women and suffer in this world.
