HYMEN

HYMEN

Behind closed doors

On their wedding night, a man and a woman are alone for the first time. Desire, fear and awkwardness prevent them from having intercourse before dawn. In the morning, they are supposed to expose the blood-stained wedding sheets : they have to find a solution for appearances’ sake and to protect the honour of their families.
