As American forces and foreign aid leave Afghanistan, the country's fragile democracy and the recent gains for women hang in the balance. Trapped in the uncertainty are Nilofar, a member of parliament, and Shakila, a television journalist, who are forced to choose between motherhood and their personal devotion to reform in Afghanistan. Director Sedika Mojadidi has worked as a camera woman and producer for ABC News, A&E, Discovery and Human Rights Watch. Through her special insider access, we see the day to day realities of Afghan women on the front lines struggling to maintain the hard-won rights in a place where lawlessness, political instability, suicide bombs, and civil war are a way of life.
