A Young Malay Woman Is Trapped In A Marriage She Doesn’t Want

Cage (Sangkar)

Child marriage is usually told as a loss of innocence or problems of economy, but we forgot to ask 'What about her desire? Her sexuality?'

A story about a high school girl in a rural area. She just reached an age where a boy has caught her attention and possibly heart when her family had to marry her off to an old man to help with the financial situation at home. All that could go wrong had gone wrong as she discovered how the old man is related to the boy she likes.
