The Beloved Daughter

Show trailer
A 14-year-old Nepalese girl and her family are dreaming of a different future, but are confronted with a difficult choice.

The 14-year-old Nepalese girl Rekha is yearning to become an English teacher. But the dream is almost impossible to realise, as Rekha's family is planning to marry her off to a young boy in the neighbouring village. 'The Beloved Daughter' is a colourful but delicate tale about how poverty and cultural traditions force Rekha's father to send her away from the family and make her step into adulthood at a far too early age. For even though child marriage is prohibited by law – even in Nepal – the tradition is still widespread and responsible for determining the fate of children like Rekha all over the world.
