Movie synopsis: Based on true events of 1996, the film follows the story of a fourteen-year-old country girl who decided to resist male power and violence. Meaza Ashenafi, an emancipated lawyer, struggles within the Ethiopian legal system to get her client absolved from the capital punishment and break the centuries-old local tradition which violates the rights of girls and women. After a man sets his eyes on a young girl, he confirms the marriage by kidnapping and raping her. The debut of Zeresenay Berhane Mehari, an Ethiopian director and scriptwriter, draws attention to cultural differences and to the difficulties related to the country's transformation towards equality of civil rights, defended by a mere handful of the brave.
