"War has got inside a woman's very being. Inside her head the soldiers march out, trampling down everything in their path. Like a grieving Madonna, she weeps for son and brother. From her pain and the blood of men killed in battle, an army of women springs up, a powerful column inspired by faith and rebellion. The thirst for justice becomes a thirst for revenge. The woman's body is a weapon, her robes her armour. She who once gave life will deal out death. A film without words."
