Overview /Sypnosis

The film is the brave testimony of seven Colombian women fed up with a society that kills them. The protagonists, through their lives, construct another reality from scratch, from the foundations, from an optic where violence is not the rule that dictates their lives. There are seven independent stories that speak of dialogue and consensus. They repeat that patriarchy silences and annihilates them.

One of them creates a City of women; another, ex-guerrilla of the guerrilla, leaves the arms and today runs a Centre for Peace; a humble mother calls for justice and memory for more than 4,500 extrajudicial executions; another responds to the guerrilla and violent attacks with invasions of unarmed women ...
They demand a new system that recognizes their rights as a basic human need. They raise a new Colombia, a new society, fairer and egalitarian, a place that has to be built from the ground up again so they can breathe peace. They demand justice, reparation and a future. They reject continuity of inequalities and killings. They know - because they have suffered in their flesh - that violence generates more violence.
