Storyline

A civil war had been raging for years between the dictatorship of the Liberian president and the rebels who called themselves the LURD. The LURD wanted to overthrow the government. They terrorized the people in the country through killings, rapes, dismemberment and destruction. They were becoming more powerful as they closed in on the capital city, Monrovia. One unlikely heroine is inspired by a dream to bring Christian women together to start a peace movement. She begins within her own church and asks that all women from all churches are brought together. At one meeting, a Muslim woman goes up to the podium to address the church and tells them that she is moved by what they were doing and that Muslim women need to be brought into the Peace Movement. This was a cause that transcended all differences. With this extraordinary mission, the women dressed in plain white clothes and covered their heads, as a way to shed any differences of class or religion among them. They decide to make ...

This is a terrible life to live. We are tired. We are tired.
29 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the best documentaries in 2008. It is a testament to those who demand that peace come about.

Instead of talking about it, the women of Liberia decided to step up and put themselves on the line for peace.

It did not come easily, but they persisted until it did finally come.

This is the story of how they did it and a testament to the power of women and peacemakers.

I am just amazed at what these women were able to accomplish, and Director Gini Reticker made it a most enjoyable film.

This is a must see.
