In Limoncito, a small town located in the Bolivian Amazon, the Lira family, composed of a mother and three daughters, promote the creation of a group of women weavers in defense of the Women’s Law. Their daily life is tied together; along with daughters, granddaughters and nieces they have overcome their own stories of gender violence.
