Switzerland – Germany / 2018 / 101’
The stories of five women crossed by the necessity of making public the feminist cause through art and imagination. Religions, beliefs, and traditions burden their weight in women’s role as mothers and wives. However, Deborah, Leyla, Rokudenashiko, Doris, and Vithika raise their bodies to reinterpret the possibility of being more than that and leading proposals that transform their family, social, and cultural environments against what is given for granted. An ex-nun, an ex-orthodox jew, a female genital mutilation survivor, a plastic artist, and a social leader bet their lives for change.
