" Unsilent Potato" Documentary from Myanmar

Directed by Sein Lyan Tun 

This story is about a young disable Karen ethnic girl named 'Patato'. In 2014, she was raped by neighbour married man who was later accused for the said case. The rape case (376) nonetheless was deceived as seduction suits (417) that having unlawful sexual relation of persuasion. After giving birth to a boy, she determined to seek justice for the right instead of accepting pennies from the defendant.
Such cases are rarely in open discussion for people in Myanmar to state out of comfort zone due to fear-shame dynamic culture. Mostly, cases are sealed with small little money from defendants to zipped up the victims.
The case deferred until 2016.
After making a firm decision, family attempted to raise women's awareness and disability rights so they let the world know her daughter's devastating story.
Potato, the poor girl, who can't even speak to voice her feeling out but to express her pains by drawing sketches. That's how she describes she is in deep sorrow, despair and frustration.
The strong-willed Karen ethnic girl and her family, they are eager to share this with women's community who have been suffered long enough in silent to awake, stand out and fight for the truth & fair justice, to gain clean society which has no perpetrator above the law.
The trial is still ongoing.
