You'll be cheering for the two formidable females at the centre of this fascinating, fly-on-the-wall documentary: state prosecutor Vera Ngassa and judge Beatrice Ntuba. Demonstrating entertaining wit and wisdom as they dispense justice to West African villagers, they make a real difference to the lives of local women in a society where patriarchal privilege has led to horrific abuse. The three cases concentrated on here – from build-up to aftermath - are unsurprisingly harrowing, including a young girl brutally mistreated by her aunt. However, Ngassa and Ntuba's no-nonsense courtroom manner, combined with their touching sensitivity towards the victims, render events uplifting as well as tragic. By improving their community one victory at a time, this stereotype-busting pair could well change their entire country.
