Based on a true story, the film casts a withering look at the patriarchal system of that nation and the corruption of the local authorities. Told in a non-linear style, it tells of three women faced with armed men led by her uncle who try to take her property forcibly from her. They lay siege to the house, fuelled by a sense of entitlement where men often have elevated property rights over women, even in a situation such as this one where the women were quite clearly the rightful owners of the land.
