Hilltribes in northern Vietnam still retain the custom of early marriage at age 14 or 15. A 16-year-old girl, La, also got married two years ago and now cherishes a 10-month-old baby girl.
La loved singing and desired to become a singer once…, no longer it comes true. She sees the harsh reality of life working from morning till night every day.
Her husband is in his two year of junior high school. In the early years of their marriage, La was happy as he open-heartedly helped her with the housework through mowing grass of cattle. But these days, he is undomesticated, never hearing her requests.
La’s feeling tangles. She still likes him, whilst she chides herself for the immature marital life.

Production: Red Bridge (Vietnam)/Temjin (Japan)


少女たちの子守歌

ベトナム北部の山岳民族の間には、14、5歳で結婚する早婚の風習が残されている。16歳の少女ラーも、2年前に結婚して10か月の娘がいる。歌が好きで歌手になるのが夢だったが、もうそれは叶わない。生活は厳しくて、朝から夜まで働き詰めの毎日。中学2年生の夫は、結婚当初はやさしくて牛の草刈りなども手伝ってくれたが、今ではいくら頼んでも聞いてくれない。
それでも、夫のことが好きだが、なぜ、こんなに早く結婚してしまったのか、つらい思いがつのる。
