Monk

Inspired by a short scene from an 8mm film shot in the mid-1960's. A young girl is throwing her doll up into the air in defiance of her mother. Family members watch, stunned by the girls emotional outburst and strong rebellion. This reminded me of the famous scene of the Vietnamese Monk Thich Quang Duc burning himself to death in protest of the persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese Roman Catholic government.
