Meet the young women whose kidnapping by Boko Haram, a militant terrorist organization based in northeastern Nigeria, drew global attention and inspired the social media campaign #BringBackOurGirls. Through exclusive interviews, see how girls who managed to escape are adapting to life after their imprisonment as thousands of women and girls remain captives of Boko Haram today.

A conversation with filmmakers Karen Edwards and Sasha Achilli, Chidinma Irene Nwoye, and ShobanaShankar, moderated by Faith Salie follows the film.

The documentary debuts on October 22 on HBO.

Co-presented by African Film Festival, Inc. and HBO Documentary Films
