‘Love and punishment’ - a story of how an underage girl married the guy she loved
“We had some common acquaintances, there’d been some incidental encounters and occasional talks on the phone, and we fell in love with each other,” Mziuri Khmaladze says unpretentiously, simply.
But hers is not a simple story at all. She married at 16, for love and of her own will.
However, her husband, Murad Surmanidze, was tried and found guilty of ‘repeated sexual intercourse with a minor’. He was sentenced to two years probation and is forbidden from leaving the country. This has prevented him from finding a decent job as well.
Otherwise they are very happy in a large family. A lot music and songs in the movie.
