The story takes place in Ghana of today. It is inspired by a young girl called Edinam. She was a slave of the fetish priests. Against all odds, Edinam escapes from the shrine and continues her education. As the film follows Edinam's life from the age of innocence to early adulthood, the viewers are treated to a beautiful showcase of the real and animated African life in a typical village.
According to the customary practice in the Volta region of Ghana, which has lasted for some 300 years, if someone commits a serious crime or social infraction, traditional chiefs order that a virgin girl from that family be sent to the shrine as a form of atonement. She is expected to serve the priests for many years, after which the family may redeem her. During this time, the head priest and his entourage genitally mutilate and sexually abuse the girls. They consider them their 'property'. The abuse leads to numerous pregnancies and abortions of girls as young as 12 years old.
Edinam (real name: Belinda Siamey), the protagonist of the story, made history in Africa when director Bruno Pischiutta cast her to play herself in the lead role of the film.
Mihoko Tokoro of Amnesty International in Los Angeles said: "PUNCTURED HOPE is a very powerful and politically important feature film that the Academy of Motion Picture, Arts and Science should truly consider for a nomination this year. Such a nomination is not only deserved for a beautifully executed film but it will also help to raise the much needed attention, on a global scale, to the issue of women and children slavery in today's West Africa and of the genital mutilation of women in the world. We need to reach out, inform and get the support of the global community to create an equal world where human rights and human dignity are respected. Through the medium of film, PUNCTURED HOPE, represents a great tool to reach out to the general public for support. I commend the work of the film's director and producer who made this great film and fight, step by step, to raise awareness to the issues it addresses."
