An estimated 48 women are raped every hour in this mineral rich part of the world. The women, who once had a very simple and rich life farming in the fields are now forced to be slaves in Gold mines, working for the rebels. The minerals then eventually leave Congo, going out to the international market. This intimate film captures powerful testimonies from both women and children living in this part of the region.
