Good subject

I felt compelled to express my admiration of the courage of the film writer and director. In a society where we walk on eggshell about this particular religion's problems, this short ( that should have been a Feature) is telling a shocking empowering story. The main character, the mother is scary but yet sympathetic, the writer is telling us that she doesn't know how else to deal with her daughter's mistake. The dialogue could've been better, as well as some of the side actors, but in general its a good short that I got the pleasure to see in NY short film festival . The music is very touching and helped tell the story better. I did not enjoy the opening sequence but I feel the rest of the film is well put together. Hope we see more of these stories.
