In "About My Man," the woman is deeply divided in her relationship with her husband. She desperately wants to maintain her marriage and togetherness with her husband, with whom she has four children, but his callous ignorance forces her to make an extreme decision. The woman explains why she does this - she has an irresistible need to convince herself and the audience that she and her husband are a perfect couple. She believes that they have achieved perfect happiness together and that nothing could ever jeopardize that happiness.

I wanted to show the discrepancy between reality and ideals. My protagonist believes in her own created reality by forcing her ideas of happiness into reality. And this adaptation happens at any price.
