Women whose families were killed in Croatian war for independence; who were tortured and raped but survived kept silent for 25 years. Despite all that and the fact that they still live in the vicinity to their abusers- former friends and schoolmates, these women are getting their power back. For 3 years the film follows 3 women connecting with their deepest truths during the strengthening program, but also in their homes, villages and cities where they live. Mary feels she doesn't deserve to be free; For Kate any change is very scary; Ana describes herself as a little lonely duckling that doesn't belong anywhere. Today, the discovery of who they could be without the trauma they're identified with, is changing their life and relations.
