THE WOMEN

Mi-Thet (18), has suddenly become the head of her household after the military causes the collapse of her family. She moves to Yangon to work in a garment factory, but she has not been paid for several months. Though she wants to join her coworkers in a strike, she is paralyzed by a traumatic past. In time she realizes that the real problem facing women like her is not money but the lack of rights. At last she finds the strength to change her situation.
