Rape

The unbearable story of a young Tunisian woman who is raped by some policemen before she goes to complain to the nearest police station. Useless to say that this fight is lost in advance. How could it be else in a country where women are considered after the camel? This a real painful but so realistic tale. I heard some people in the audience be very uncomfortable, groaning. I myself felt dizzy. A true masterpiece worth seeing at all cost.
