The little one

Malá

film-roll Czech Republic / Color / 10' / 2017

The film says the story of Rong (6 yrs.), a small girl who lives in the Czech Republic as a foreigner. While growing up Rong experiences various unpleasant situations connected to her Vietnamese origin – looking different from the other children. Rong is silent and spends most of the time with her fish – her closest being. Getting older Rong gains self-confidence and in 18 years of her age Rong can even support her sister Lilly in the same struggles Rong knows herself – from her own childhood – teaches her that being different does not mean being worse.
