The film revolves around the stories of four women — Shamima, a volunteer counselor working with survivors of military rape in a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, Dil Kayas, a teenage survivor, and San Lung and Lu Ra, the sister and mother of two Kachin school teachers brutally raped and killed in 2015, allegedly by the Burmese military. Powerful testimonies from survivors, witnesses and activists explore the far-reaching impact of sexual violence and trauma upon communities is interwoven with stories of courageous women calling for justice and an end to impunity.

Amae, Thamee, Ama (Ibu, Anak, Adik) membawa suara wanita Kachin dan Rohingya dalam menghentikan keganasan seksual di tengah konflik.
