Two family clans (here just called A and B) who had a long history of hostility agreed to bury their hostility. One central point of the agreement is that the youngest girl of A (who has not really a trustworthy young male escape. After some time they feel (correctly) that their present hiding place is not safe enough, and they make a second reached puberty) will marry the oldest man of B. The girl, her mother and escape. Here they are safe and this place is never found out. But in a town there will be a large festival. In view of the many years mother and daughter had lived without fear they take the chance and go to this town. But the B clan had expected that.Written by

Wow. I loved watching this film. I wouldn't say it tackles a social problem or delivers a message exactly, the performances are far too moving and personal to be about anything other than the story of this mother and daughter. And that is an anecdote to how good the performances are. Extremely moving film it makes you feel what the mother is feeling during so many scenes. A must watch.
