- In June 2002, a dispute involving a question of honor between the Mai and Mastois clans in rural Pakistan was judged by a local tribal council. When Mukhtar Mai pleaded on her clan's behalf, the local imam consented to her punishment as honor-revenge, and she was brutally gang-raped. This film documents the remarkable story of Mukhtar Mai, whose demand for justice led to an arduous series of legal proceedings, with many setbacks and appeals, that resulted in fundamental changes to the Pakistani legal system.
