This sobering documentary takes viewers inside a hospital for rape survivors on the border of Congo and Rwanda, sharing the heart-wrenching story of Lumo Sinai, a Congolese woman who was brutally attacked by a roving band of soldiers. A life-changing surgery offers Lumo real hope that her battered body will one day be "normal." But when complications arise, her fellow patients become even more like family.
