15m Short, Student 2022

In 1960 Apartheid South Africa on a farm, far from the urban landscape, a young servant maid has her son taken away from her at birth by the farm owner’s wife. Unable to challenge the authority, the young maid and her husband continue to work on the farm, but are distanced from their son. The farmer’s wife takes the child to raise as her own because she is unable to conceive. She has everything she needs and wants, except a child. Her servant maid’s pregnancy becomes the ticket to attain her dream of motherhood.
