    • Synopsis
    • Inspired by true events, Little Brides is the poignant story of two daring Yemeni women: Selwa, the determined founder of a struggling shelter for abused women, and Esme, a terrified ten-year-old child bride ripped away from her childhood. With their worlds collapsing, their resilience is a stirring message of hope in a society blinded by tradition.
      As a searing indictment of child marriage and its devastating consequences, Little Brides is a gripping tale that will move audiences around the world.
