The woman that BBC termed \"Afghanistan\'s most famous female\" – Malalai Joya. She came under international spotlight in 2003 when, as a new member of Afghanistan\'s constituent assembly, she took the opportunity to lambaste for three minutes her military-origin colleagues: \"Those who destroy the country and oppress women should be put on trial at the international tribunal.\" Two years later, she became the first woman in the country\'s 35-year history of parliamentary elections to run for a seat. follows the final 10 days of election when she presses on in her campaign despite terrorist threats from her military-origin colleagues. The \"ten-day record\" of this campaign is at once a record of the everyday struggles within the <말라라이 region and a record of the many dimensions of Afghan society. Through the diverse characters who populate this film, one can catch a glimpse of the unrelenting war and poverty, and the multi-layers of Afghan women’s oppression, including traditional customs and rules. One woman\'s courageous struggle to win rights for women and create democratic spaces in the interstices of a country suffering from ten years of imperial penetration and the iron-fisted control of a military government imbue the film with moments of dignified strength and triumph.
