TV Screenplay Seeks to Discourage Child Marriage
Through a number of films, public awareness is pushed ahead over the risks and harms of child marriage. Audiovisual production helps open eyes to the need to provide a better future for children.
Siti was still in her first year of senior high school in North Lombok regency, West Nusa Tenggara, when she married Wira, her senior in school. Wira was self-motivated to prove to his friends that he was truly up to the “win Siti’s heart” challenge.
A few months into their young marriage, Siti became pregnant. With Wira still not working, Siti tries to provide economic support for the household by doing the clothes washing work in the neighborhood.
