Zeliha Dagli, a feminist and activist, takes us on a journey to the suburbs of Stockholm, where human rights are being violated by the romanticized waves of fundamentalism. Since recent years women and girls are barely active in public in the suburbs.

Intertwined with Zeliha's personal story are four other women's rights activists that years ago migrated from their native countries to participate on an equal basis in a secular and open society. They are all experiencing the strengthening of those religious-fundamentalist currents from which they have fled.

They talk about their fight against the oppression of women and against the relativization of violence as an unchanging cultural phenomenon. Integration and cultural relativism is discussed from a feministic approach.

Sara Mohammad, Mina Ahadi, Saïda Keller-Messahli and Seyran Ates are all living under death threats but still assuring us they will never give up their belief that women's rights are human right's.
