Since the beginning of the conflict in Syria, rape has been used as a tool of war by the Syrian regime against thousands of women: a crime against humanity. The women who speak in this film have decided to break the silence. Their testimonies are rare, exceptional and heartbreaking. They are the voices of the untold crimes of Bashar al-Assad's regime
