complicated and more gray - an angel with broken wings, bad girl with a halo over her

horns, a product of a dysfunctional family, a girl growing up too soon. This leaves room

for fragmentations and the need to pursue multi-narratives within the society. It clearly

illustrates that we no longer conforms to the master narrative, the voices of the multiple

narratives must be expressed. identity. As the film progresses, more and more hidden

stories are unveiled, within its hidden stories (narratives), an enriching experience all too

familiar in life, yet rare in cinema.
