Lumo is a young woman who, living in war-torn Congo, is raped by soldiers, left with a fistula - which leaves her incontinent and possibly unable to give birth - and rejected by her family and her fiance. She finds her way to a hospital for rape survivors, where "the mamas" show her love, give her practical help and offer a way forward. Screening with short film Asylum.
Dir Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt and Nelson Walker III, Democratic Republic of Congo/USA 2007, 72 mins
