Difret Movie

A 14-year old girl is kidnapped three hours from Addis Ababa on her way home from school. This is a common practice in her village – abduction into marriage – but this doesn’t sit well with Hirut and she decides to shoot her would-be husband. Meaza Ashenafi, an empowered and tenacious young lawyer, arrives from the city to represent Hirut and argue that she acted in self defense. She tries to save Hirut’s life but it becomes tough because of the tug of war between trying to enforce civil rights and abiding to customary law.
