This feature documentary, by acclaimed filmmaker Kim Longinotto, follows several young African women who are fighting the tradition of female genital mutilation in Kenya. Longinotto illustrates the complex history and current conflicts of this practice through both candid and gripping testimonials of the young women experiencing the trauma as well as interviews with elderly matriarchs who obstinately support the tradition.
