This 81-minute documentary film is about the first time rape was prosecuted as a crime of war. It’s been a crime of war since 1919, but wasn’t prosecuted until 1997, when a group of young prosecutors, activists and investigators went after that first conviction. The case was fought by legal underdogs, against the odds, and that it almost didn’t happen. Thanks to the extraordinary courage of Witnesses JJ, NN and OO (and their fearless leader Godelieve Mukasarasi), women from rural Rwanda changed history.
