Poonam's Fortune - Kids on the Silk Road
Poonams Lykke - Børnene på Silkevejen
Poonam, 14, happily breaks the news of her imminent marriage during a break at her school in Nepal. As her friends chatter about horrible arranged marriages, it dawns on Poonam that she has no clue about her future husband and in-laws. All she knows is that she’ll be moving to their house and must follow their rules. What will be her status in her new family? She cries during the wedding when saying goodbye to her mother. But she falls in love with her husband and fulfils the dreams of her and her husband’s families when she delivers a baby boy nine months later.
