Anita (Mother of War) is propelled by an invigorating encounter between Brazilian-gaucho guerrilla fighter Anita Garibaldi and outspoken American journalist Margaret Fuller in a battered Rome under siege. The film - a historical fiction interpretation rooted in the 19th century revolutions of South America and Italy -- probes the motivations of historic figures, including Anita's famed husband Giuseppe Garibaldi, determined to fight for social justice. Anita Garibaldi, a fearless woman of action, and Margaret Fuller, a tormented woman of letters, asserted themselves at a time when women had limited options in life. Over the course of their meeting, both women come to better understand their place in the world.
