Abstract:This documentary film is a portrait of three everyday heroines in Nigeria who manage to make ends meet against all odds. As their personal stories unfold, we come to see that the widely ignored environmental pollution in their backyard is not the only human rights issue affecting their lives. It gives a taste of everyday life in the Niger Delta through the eyes of three ordinary women: Hannah, Naomi and Rebecca. Their struggle to survive in the delta's beautiful but pollution-marred wetlands confronts us with the human impact of corporate irresponsibility, gender injustice, and failing government service delivery. Their stories shed light on day-to-day injustices but they also highlight women's strength and resilience. Despite the hardship affecting their lives, the filmed women are determined to give their children a better future. [Abstract reproduced from dvd-video]
