The findings from the study were then developed into a narrated, documentary style film that unraveled the intricacies of how a changing and developing country battles the challenge of exploitation.
A carefully developed script resulting in a powerful short film. It was a look into one woman’s experience as she faced a cultural shift that changed generations of established behavior.
