BELONG

Synopsis: 

Throughout history, feral children have routinely been cases of neglect, abuse, or the abandonment of children with special needs. If a child is abandoned in the crucial years where language is learned, they cannot regain that developmental stage. BELONG is a reversal of that idea. This child's caregivers are neglectful and disinterested. The (feminist) child leaves her environment in favor of the wild. Instead of a feral/wild child being discovered, this child goes seeking it on her own accord. What separates feral children from humans is that they don't "belong" to anything. Neither human nor animal.
