About the documentary: Africa's agonies are presently being deeply etched on the bodies of women. In eastern Congo on the Rwandan border, vying militias, armies and bandits use rape as a weapon of terror. Lumo Sinai was just over 20 when marauding soldiers attacked her. A fistula, a medical condition common among victims of violent rape, rendered Lumo incontinent and threatens her ability to bear children. Lumo's story is told in this documentary, which is tragic in its cruelties but also inspiring for the struggle Lumo wages and the dignity she displays. With the help of an extraordinary African hospital, she struggles to overcome shame, fear and the affliction that threatens to rob her of a normal life.
