Despite increasingly refined technology mass-rape as a tool of war is used in modern combat. 25,000 – 40,000 women were victims of mass rape during the Balkan war 1992-1995. When a woman is raped, the entire family is affected for generations to come. 20 years after these crimes only very few cases of war crimes of sexual violence have been investigated and prosecuted. For the women in the film the rapes remain a heavy, dark shadow in their lives enshrouded by taboo. For these women legal justice is the only hope to regain integrity and life.
