The African film, Ninah's Dowry, filmed by Victor Viyuoh, was a very hard film to watch. Filmed in the country of Cameroon, this film was filled with domestic abuse and neglect. I was shocked at the way Ninah's husband treated her. Ninah is just a teenage girl, living in Cameroon, with three of her children and her abusive husband. She tries to run away from him multiple times, leaving her three children behind, yet her husband searches and hunts after her as she hides in various places. Ninah has a dream of owning a restaurant, but it is crushed many times by her abusive husband when Ninah tries to run away to follow her dream. It was truly hard for me to watch because of the way he treated his wife. The whole situation made me mad, and now I've learned that there are a lot of women suffering around the world in abusive relationships that need help. Hopefully, our generation can make a difference in the near future.
