A quest for justice & healing after war
During Liberia’s Civil War, Gladys was forced to watch the brutal murder of her mother by a NPFL Rebel. The same fighter held her captive as a sex slave for years. The nightmare started at an area Gladys refers to as Camp 72. More than a decade later, Gladys like many survivors of the 14-year civil war is trying to rebuild her life and come to terms with the fact that no one in Liberia has been prosecuted for their war crimes. The rebel who raped Gladys and killed her mother lives in freedom miles away from her.
This documentary takes an unprecedented look at the country’s controversial Truth and Reconciliation process post conflict. We follow that continuous quest for justice and healing through the eyes of survivors, former warlords, grassroots activists and four Nobel Laureates. We witness how Gladys and others find hope despite the worst of circumstances.
