Girls in the Truck

Zambezia, Mozambique. Several girls sit in the back of their neighbor’s truck waiting for a ride at dusk out of the farm fields. They have been doing odd jobs throughout the afternoon, like watering vegetables, in exchange for some coins to buy candies. The truck engine won’t start, so the girls entertain themselves singing songs, and tease each other about wanting to leave school to get married before they are 15.
