When we rape we feel free, confesses a young soldier in the Congolese Army. According to the American Journal of Public Health, 48 women are raped every hour in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The DRC earned a reputation as most dangerous country in the world for women. In this documentary, soldiers explain why they rape and describe how the atrocities took place. It follows the story of Masika, who opened a rescue center to offer counselling and shelter to rape victims. Can these women escape the shadow cast by this threat of sexual violence and will the specter of justice bring hope and resolution?
