Ethiopian drama based on a true story and executively produced by Angelina Jolie. 14-year-old Hirute Assefa (Tizita Hagere) is abducted by a gang for their leader to marry. After being raped Hirute manages to escape and in the process gets hold of a gun and kills the man that would have become her husband. When Ethiopian Women Lawyers Association founder Meaza Ashenafi (Meron Getnet) learns of Hirute's situation she decides to defend the girl in court, arguing self-defence, despite abduction into marriage being a tradition in the country which is still commonly practised. Will Meaza win the case or will Hirute face a death sentence?
