Told through the eyes of three Afghan women - a doctor, teacher, and human rights activist-this documentary tells the story of how war, international interference , and the rise of religious fundamentalism has stripped Afghan women of rights and freedom. Together with rarely seen archival footage , their powerful stories provide illuminating context for Afghanistan's current situation and the ongoing battle women face to gain even basic human rights.
