Court métrage d’animation sur une femme qui porte la guerre en elle. Dans sa tête les soldats avancent, piétinant tout sur leur passage. Telle une pietà, elle pleure son fils, son frère. De sa douleur et du sang de l'homme mort au combat surgit une armée de femmes, puissante colonne drapée dans la foi et la révolte. La soif de justice devient soif de vengeance. Le corps de la femme est une arme, sa robe une armure. Celle qui jadis donnait la vie donnera la mort. Film sans paroles.

Why is the burka always associated with violence? By reflecting on women’s roles around the world, students may gain a new understanding of the liberties that exist in Canada. In what countries are women required to wear the burka? Under what legal code is it imposed upon women? Is wearing this garment a voluntary act?
