Australian Premiere

 “We (women) had to fight a revolution within the revolution.”

When the revolution is over, what becomes of the revolutionaries? Nicaraguan women took up arms in the US-backed Contra War, seeking social reform throughout the 1979 Sandanista Revolution. Now benevolent grandmothers, professional executives, and unassuming housewives, these ex-revolutionaries often kept secrets from the men in their life - like having a closet full of AK-47s and hand grenades. "By the way honey, I was a guerilla fighter for the revolution." 

Once the war was over, a battle was fought on a new front - marginalisation by their male co-revolutionaries with whom they fought shoulder-to-shoulder. So what becomes of militant women once the revolution is over?
