Video: What Happens When a 15-Year-Old from a Conservative Family Gets Pregnant?

This short film, by Sarjun KM, delves into the taboo topic of teenage pregnancy through its poignant depiction of family.

‘Maa’ isn’t your average film. It tests the relationship between a mother and her daughter when they are faced with a problem no one saw coming—teenage pregnancy.

Ammu, a 15-year-old avid hockey player, returns home to all the telltale signs that she is pregnant, and confesses to the only person she can trust: her mother, Satya.

What makes this short film different from others which have dealt with similar topics? Its realistic portrayal of a family and the bond which exists between mother and child. Sarjun KM, the man behind the film, manages to craft a poignant story, which is filled with beautiful moments of realisation, suspense, and above all, the true meaning of what it means to be a family.

You can watch the entire short film, which has crossed over two million views, below!
