Tupiah, a 42-year-old mother who is pregnant with her fifth child, found herself in a remarkable situation one night. With unwavering determination, Tupiah decided to step out to cover her husband’s neighbourhood watch duty, as he was unable to fulfil his responsibilities. She brought along some snacks as a token of appreciation for the watchmen stationed at the guard post. To her surprise, when she arrived at the guard post, she didn’t encounter the watchmen but rather other mothers who were also filling in for their husbands. In that unexpected moment, a strong sisterhood blossomed among them as they collectively confronted a thief. Their empathy, courage, and sense of unity were put to the ultimate test.
