cast and crew


Hadijatou Mani is the first woman ever to take legal action against the State of Niger for allowing her status as slave and not protecting her. She won the case back in 2009. An unprecedented trial and a turning point in the fight against modern slavery. Her experience, along with that of other women facing similar situations, gives us first-hand insight as to what slavery is like in the 21st century.
