«I always knew I had to tell the story about the girls in my community but gathering the strength to express my inner feelings through images was rather difficult […] The film does not provide solutions for the vicious circle of aggression. I think the film is more of a discourse of revenge, of decompression. The film does not touch at all on the possibility of escaping the status of the victim but rather seeks to determine a kind of experience of her emotions.»
