Just a child. Documentary. Latvia, 2015
Director: Aiga Skrīvere
The two young women - Lidija and Esmeralda - have become mothers at a tender age. At the moment they're at a point where neither their families nor the fathers of their children can help them. They live in a safe house which proves to be a place where they can get the love, good will and peace they couldn't find before. The visceral flick contrasts youthful naivety with hard-to-face facts in a story of longing, hoping for love, and making difficult choices.
