A Thousand Girls Like Me

 

Synopsis
When Khatera, a 23-year-old Afghan woman, forces her father to stand trial after a lifetime of sexual abuse, she risks her family, freedom, and personal safety to expose the faulty judicial system that incriminates the very women who seek protection. In this awe-inspiring story of one woman’s battle to make her voice heard, the young Afghani director demonstrates the power of action over fear while she embarks on a mission to set a positive example for her daughter and other girls like her.
