In the Name of Your Daughter
In Tanzania, circumcised girls are worth twice as much in terms of dowry as uncircumcised girls. Many girls bleed to death during the annual circumcision season, and therefore a group of girls escape to Rhobi Samwelly’s Safe House, where they are safe from their families.
The main goal of Rhobi and her colleagues is to bring enlightenment, understanding and love back to the families, and together they defend the girls both at home and in the courts.
The film is the story about a modern heroine and some of the bravest girls in the world – girls, who put their lives at risk to change their tough destiny.
