About the film:
The 1994 Rwandan Genocide left the country nearly 70 percent female,
handing Rwanda's women an extraordinary burden and an unprecedented
opportunity. An inspiring story of loss and redemption, this film
captures the spirit of five courageous women as they rebuild their
lives, redefining women's roles in Rwandan society and bringing hope
to a wounded nation.
