My Choice

Nilufer married her husband at a young age despite her mother’s objection. Now, with a child, life after marriage is not wonderful as she thought and she has to live with her choice. This documentary tries to presents a young housewife’s life in an objective perspective. In the film, Nilufer talked about her dream with all her passion, but the life she’s living is totally different from her dream and it’s unlikely that she would ever achieve it. Yet she is still optimistic towards her future, and it seems like she is trying to numb herself with her dreams so that she could stay strong in real life.
