Empathy, Migration, Social Issues
Gordon Lee and Mostafa Haque
A young girl leaps across boundaries both social and supernatural to find herself, her mother, and the fabled land of freedom her mother spoke of.
Rayha’s Poem is a third-person narrative platformer about a young girl running away to the mythical Fairyland to escape injustice. Drawing on themes of South Asian folklore and contemporary social issues, Rayha’s Poem seeks to tell a tale that’s both out of, as well as a product of, its time – a narrative that melds the always-relevant curse of forced marriage with the eternal dream of a land free from woe.
