Ruby moved to Melbourne to start living the life she wanted to lead, but her family back home has other plans. Marriage in her culture is a family affair where everyone is involved. Ruby’s family have been on the hunt for someone to “take care of her” for years now but Ruby is in no rush to settle. RUBY is a 5 min documentary that depicts the pressure Ruby feels from her family to marry who they choose or to find her own way.
