What happens to a girl’s development when her family casts her out when she is still a child? How is her future affected by the violence that she encounters, violence that is concealed under a veneer of care and concern?
The documentary film The Beloved Daughter examines a childhood that is cut short and the mental landscape of a young girl growing up in the midst of violence.
