The Cry of Silence

Anama, a 15-year-old girl, finds herself in a harrowing situation: she suspects she is pregnant and desperately searches for the morning-after pill. In her quest to obtain it, she confronts a clinic alone, where she becomes a victim of abuse by the doctor. Back at home, she struggles to express what has transpired, hindered by fear and shame. As her mother, Claudia, notices that something is amiss, Anama refuses to confess the truth. However, the presence of marks on her body reveals the depth of her suffering. This poignant short film explores themes of resilience, courage, and the power of support in the midst of adversity.
