Storyline

1975, Mozambique's rebirth as an independent nation. The young revolution sweeps the streets of Maputo clean of prostitutes and bad habits. The prostitutes are sent to re-education camps deep in the countryside, where they will become "new women" - loyal comrades of the new nation. As the "clean-up" takes place, Margarida, a 16-year-old girl from the countryside, is mistakenly taken. Drawing on the stories of real women, Virgin Margarida is a dramatic exploration of a little known chapter in Mozambique's history. A chapter that made no allowance for individuality and enshrined male domination as an ideology.
