The feature film tells the story of 15-year-old Rebeca, who dreams of going to high-school. However, Rebeca’s family won’t let her. Determined to win approval, she starts visiting the local church of her Christian Baptist village where a young priest tells her to read the Bible. She does so, and starts to discover radical passages that call for an uprising against social injustice. A conflict with the patriarchs of the village breaks out – with life-changing consequences.
