A story of overcoming struggle through gumption and sisterhood. Furaha and Venantie have survived traumas we could never imagine, yet in each other they find strength. This strength, so great, empowers their entire female community to set out for a different future.

Contemporaneously the mythical story of Kimpa Vita plays out — she is the mother of African Revolution in The Kingdom of the Kongo (1390-1857).
She was the first to fight colonialism and the patriarchy, she stood and suffered for all women.
