The 1994 Rwandan Genocide left the country nearly 70% female, giving Rwanda’s women an extraordinary burden and an unprecedented opportunity. The film follows five courageous women as they rebuild their lives, and, in doing so, redefine women’s roles in Rwandan society and bring hope to a wounded nation.
