In 2011, Hend Nafea and thousands of other young Egyptian women arrived in Cairo to support protests against decades of military rule. Hend was arrested and tortured. Although her family asked her to not talk about her experience, she persevered. Instead, in a country where the army and Islamists are fighting for power, she sets out to find freedom and justice. The violence against women during demonstrations shows how much worse the position of women is compared to men. This documentary tracks the battle of Hend and other women against the judicial system and prejudice, presenting the society-wide events, which started with hope during the Arab Spring and ended in the agony of new oppression.
