This is the story of Mina, a Pakistani girl who got married at a very young age and had her first child at 16. This story reflects the toll early marriage takes on a girl’s education, body and mental health and how the limited opportunities for education lead to difficulties in finding jobs in the future when women try to escape their marriages.
