This documentary, commissioned by a Human Rights NGO to Patricia Wiesse, follows Magda and her friends, a group of Quechua-speaking women engaged in a judicial process against the soldiers that abused them decades ago.

The Peruvian military, supposedly sent to protect the population from the guerrilla group Sendero Luminoso country-wide, committed more crimes than the Maoist group.

On top of that, women should fight the stigma of being rejected and labelled 'soldier's wives' by their own communities.

Using observational techniques to bring about the collective testimonial of the victims and recordings of the oral trial to present the perpetrators' voices, Wiesse is able to tell this story of abuse in a non-exploitative way that restores the women's dignity and supports their ongoing legal case.
