How does gender equality work in communities where physical superiority and deeply rooted traditions place all the important decisions in the hands of tribal patriarchs? Nigerian women are afraid to talk, associate, express their pain and live their dreams. It's as though they have been condemned since childhood to be the passive playthings of fathers, husbands and street thugs. The protagonist "Mrs. F." – a wife, mother and an ardent champion of women's rights – confronts this situation head on. She travels around the local communities, including the poorest ones, to build up women's basic self-confidence and the will to fight for their identity and dreams.
