Ineż is fourteen. Perfect Ineż is what everyone calls her. The ultimate label to aspire to. If you’re fourteen, anyway. Ineż is popular, beautiful, sassy, rebellious, a saint, a social media queen.

Ineż goes missing. During Covid.

Everyone in her small community turns judge and jury. Everyone’s an expert on Ineż. And while she certainly wasn’t perfect, everyone wanted her to be, in some form or other, their own idea of perfection. This story asks: What happens when a person is expected – and has no other option – but to be perfect?

Ineż għandha erbatax-il sena. Ineż il-Perfetta, hekk jgħidulha. L-isbaħ deskrizzjoni li wieħed jaspira għaliha. Jekk għandek erbatax, insomma. Ineż tfajla popolari, sabiħa, fuq tagħha, ribelluża, qaddisa, social media queen.

Ineż tisparixxi. Waqt il-Covid.

Dawk kollha fil-komunità tagħha f’daqqa waħda jsiru mħallfin. Kulħadd espert fuq Ineż. U minkejja li perfetta Ineż qatt ma kienet … kulħadd donnu xtaqha tkun, b’xi mod, dak li hu perfett għalihom. U din l-istorja tistaqsi: x’jiġri meta bniedem huwa mistenni, u m’għandu l-ebda għażla ħlief, li jkun perfett?
