Nepal has been transformed in less than a decade from a royal kingdom to a democracy where Maoists are in the majority. Over three years Bridgham follows the lives of six women through these changes, from soldier to grieving mother, from monarchist to activist.

Thanks to the Directors

Balanced, moving and comprehensive... shows how circumstances can radicalise even the most middle-of-the-road people.
