Interludes of landscape, of life in the town, of hard faces, of hardships, of hard work break up the stories of the three women at the heart of this documentary. This is an illustration of struggle, of the struggle of women, not just for equality but for what is theirs. For justice, for survival. They tell of bloodshed and violence and resistance, of facing the most powerful military in the world and winning through nerve and solidarity, of facing the parasites and making them fucking bow. And yet, they still fight, they still have so much to fight for. This film follows them into the mines, into history, into their homes, into their world and doesn't hesitate to show who and what they are: revolutionaries, organizers, workers. It shows that you don't have to be born or groomed for leadership; you simply must have the will and boldness. Every cook can learn to govern.
