Introduction:

For forty years, director Peter Torbjörnsson has been filming life in the village of San Fernando/Nicaragua. What began as a portrait of a village became the story of Ninosca, a woman who broke from her abusive husband and set off into the world with the dream of a better life in Europe and in search of a way to support her family. Yet, her struggle for independence requires her to face her past in the machismo culture of Central America.
