At six in the morning I arrive to witness the morning rituals of Soenita and her father. Later that day, I will follow her to the school.
Soenita is a five year old girl who is raised solely by her sixty-one year old father, as her mother left the house to get remarried, since she was one and a half years old.
Her father tries to cook healthy as much as he can. But as a potter he doesn't make to much money.
The amount of love these two have for each other is overwhelming and makes me tear up a bit every now and again.
As his colleague potters all start at six in the morning, while their wives take care of the children, it's difficult to compete as a single father.
Soenita will be perfectly dressed every time she goes to school.
All the care for his daughter and the worries about his little pottery business do take their toll and when Soenita is gone - he doesn't smoke while she is at home - he smokes his first sigaret...
... before going to work on his pots, plates and all kinds of ceramics.
In school, Soenita loves to play, dream and even learn...
