Plot Summary I am distancing myself from the person I want to be and from the way I want to live my life. I have become a stranger.
Synopsis
I have a warm, cozy home, two beautiful, happy daughters and an intelligent husband who is my anchor and who provides me stability. So why do I feel empty and alone. Marriage was supposed to quash that feeling of loneliness and protect me against it. “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him” (Genesis 2:18) has made me even more lonely. The need for security and stability come at the cost of other needs that I have neglected; the need to love, to be loved, to be excited, to desire and to learn.
I married out of love, but that love died out, the aftermath of routine. As the years go by I feel more distant from my husband; we have created our own private worlds resulting in alienation and our discourse solely evolves around the mundane, the children and the home. We have become two parallel lines with different needs and desires; we have changed. I am observing life from the sidelines; I am the backdrop for the perfect family. I love my family; but not myself. I am distancing myself from the person I want to be and from the way I want to live my life. I have become a stranger.

Setting
The rural setting emphasizes the beautiful marriage and family life that we portray outwards to society. Marriage is a scam but relationships are not. Marriage is the classic structure on which we were raised. When we are young, we are in love, yet as the years go by we evolve, change, mature and what suited us in the past no longer suits us today. Women’s fear of leaving the home and the sense that they are destroying the family makes them feel guilty; thus they lead miserable lives for the children, for the security. The protagonist of this film decides to walk towards what she hopes will be a better future.
