Dramatic short film
Directed by Emily Ong
Produced and written by Zaheera Zahari
Failing to attain the quixotic relationship she was groomed into needing, an idealistic young woman trapped in an abusive relationship endeavours to reclaim her life.
I made this film during my diploma course for my final year project.
The film follows a young woman, Lina, trapped in an abusive relationship. I wanted to explore a link between domestic/relationship abuse in Kuala Lumpur and the culture of misogyny in our patriarchal society.
