This hour long documentary is about visionary women of Liberia who demanded peace in their nation torn apart by political and religious civil wars. It includes archival news clips and images along with interviews from the Christian and Muslim women involved.

Rival warlords, using child soldiers armed with Kalashnikovs and zonked out on drugs, raped and pillaged the populace. A quarter of a million people were killed; another million were displaced.

Putting aside their religious differences, Christian and Muslim women decided to fight the murderers with peace. Dressed in white in the nation’s capital, Monrovia, they prayed, sang, and danced in sun and rain and demanded the president and warlords negotiate peace. They organized sit-ins lasting days; they forced cease-fire negotiations; and, when things slowed, barricaded the conference building until a settlement was hammered out.

The women’s actions are an inspiring testament to the determination of will, the power of prayer, and the results of collective peaceful action to oppose evil and make positive change.
