Product Description:

The challenges facing the women of Mozambique are numerous, especially when it comes to finding employment in fields that require a college education. But for one group of women, neither the odds against them and nor the negative attitudes of the men in their communities are reason enough to lose hope. This brilliant documentary brings viewers into a culture seldom that is talked about, but is nonetheless filled with hope and amazing stories. The women of Mozambique may face a hard road, but they are ready to disprove the local notion that women and education shouldn't mix.

Description by First Run Features Home Video:

Sofia, a young girl in Mozambique who is studying to be a doctor, finds that her professor wants more from her than hard work. An unwillingness to compromise her values - and potentially her health - may cost her a place at the university, an irretrievable loss in a country with so few opportunities for women. Highlighting corruption and misogynist attitudes in a society devastated by the AIDS virus, this acclaimed feature debut brings to light the terrible struggle women in many African countries face.
