Online Gender-based Violence, Data Privacy
The night before her counselling session, Naura is unable to sleep. Through the eyes of her childhood doll Melati, the audience discovers how Naura continues to deal with the online gender-based violence she experienced, visualised as clouds that contain screenshots of Naura and her ex-boyfriend’s conversations. But beyond these memories and the trauma that lingers, Naura also remembers the phone conversation she had with her brother that has become one of her reasons to face a new day.
