Synopsis

This powerful documentary, made by the charity Camfed, tells a story within a story, as a group of young women in rural small-town Zambia - many of whom are without electricity in their homes, let alone access to video cameras - are given the opportunity to learn how to make a film. The real-life tale they decide to tell is that of Penelop, who was orphaned at the age of ten after her parents died of AIDS. Her sister - left to provide for the family through prostitution - followed the same fate. The strength Penelop summoned to survive is inspiring and reflects hardships suffered by many Africans.
