Summary
The Pokot people come from northwest Kenya and a part of Uganda. Proud and fiercely independent, the Pokot are bearers of an ancient culture with some well-entrenched rituals. Female genital mutilation, a rite of passage into womanhood, is one of them. This film presents a collection of testimonies of those who confront this tradition—of those who fight it and, more often, those who suffer its consequences.
