Thief is based on real stories about post-natal depression. Framed as an interview via WhatsApp audio messages conducted by the author, a conversation becomes a confession of 3 women about their challenging and dark experiences of motherhood. In making Thief, we invited women to put their voices to the largely undivulged experience of post-natal depression with the promise of anonymity, on one condition: speak candidly. Thief is a characterization of all the stories collected. Expressed through the views of four women from different walks of life. Fictional, but refreshingly raw.
“...So many fears… I need to protect her from so many things...And teach her so many things. Before, I only taught myself. Why nobody warned or said how awful this is going to be? I feel cheated…”
