Human Rights Activist

Sometimes women lose as Hillary Clinton, trying to look like winners. But sometimes they win, but look lost.

For years, the activity of Leyla Yunus provoked anger, jealousy and irritation not only at the authorities, but also at a number of other human rights defenders, and even part of the public.

She is too emotional, inconsistent, irrational and categorical. These were the assessments of Leyla Yunus, who periodically gave rise to evil tongues for her harsh statements and actions.

Her colleagues that did not agree with her said this work is for the public and self-promotion, and the government called it a desire to work for Western grants. As the ending of this persecution, she was accused of working for the enemy intelligence, sentenced to prison and doomed to harassment there...

For a human rights defender it is hard to be a diplomat. This is confirmed by the fate of a number of former human rights activists, who in recent years were critics of the authorities, but today successfully cooperate with them, give comments in their defense and praise the government reforms...

A human rights activist is not a profession but a vocation. Such a person will always go against benefits and rationalism, and risk his (her) safety and health for the sake of those who do not want to admit that they have put up with injustice.

This short movie is a chronicle of the struggle of a person that does not allow anybody to intimidate her. This is a lesson of the struggle for one’s own opinion.
