A short film directed by Hannah Gal
The house was just like any other on that street – but she had been left in there, day after day, year after year, for nearly 12 years, spellbound in a little room, tied to a potty chair, sewn into a harness to attach her body to the seat, only able to move her hands and feet, naked. At night she was put in a sleeping bag of her father’s making, and lifted into a crib caged with wire mesh. Meanwhile the rest of the family, slept together in the living room, the son on the pallet, the mother on the floor, and the father in an easy chair, a gun resting on his lap.
