Fifteen-year-old Destaye and her husband divide their time between working in the fields and taking care of their 6-month-old baby. At the time of their marriage, when Destaye was age 11, she was still in school and her husband expressed interest in letting her continue her education. Since the birth of their son, however, she has had to fulfill her duties of being a wife and mother exclusively. This short film by Jessica Dimmock and Stephanie Sinclair examines this young girl’s journey as a child bride in Ethiopia

The mother herself is a baby, oh my God, this is slavery. woyane is talking about development day and night, for me development is when the society changes, when bad culture of early marrying stops, she married at the age of 11, this is crime.
