A bright 14-year-old girl is on her way home from school when men on horses swoop in and kidnap her for marriage. The brave Hirut grabs a rifle and tries to escape, but ends up shooting her would-be husband. Meaza Ashenafi, an empowered and tenacious young lawyer, arrives from the city to represent Hirut and argue that she acted in self-defense. Meaza boldly embarks on a collision course between enforcing civil authority and abiding by customary law, risking the ongoing work of her women’s legal-aid practice to save Hirut’s life. Based on a real-life story, this film goes beneath the layer of polite social customs to explore the complexity of a country’s transformation toward equal rights, featuring the courageous generation that dares to own it.
