Filmed as late 18, early 1900s Vietnam but applies throughout the world today, especially where conservative religious precepts prevail, we see three of the main suppressors of female equality. First, we have forced marriage. Second, we have family honor (usually supposed female dishonor w/consequences). Third, infant female infanticide for, well, not being a male. Are females in many family units value ranked beneath males, livestock & Trump? Several scenes toward the end were not clear, for those not sure Nightshade was suggested, but may not have been accurately presented.
