The Refuge



15 min
Eva, a reserved young girl, arrives at the Refuge, a women’s-aid center run by Mrs. Kane, where she introduced to the other girls, who greet her with mistrust and distance. The strict rules of the household are explained and Eva’s new life begins in a pressing feeling of entrapment. The story is charged with fear, love, tension, and hope. The Refuge is threatened by government-funding cuts that would leave the girls homeless–until they unite in a final act of protest.
