Bound by Cultural Expectations…

Bound by Cultural Expectations…
Two Zapatista women, bound by cultural expectations, struggle to express the truth of their lives in the highlands of Chiapas.

When a woman rises, a community is nourished. In the Maya township of Chenalhó in Chiapas, Veronica, a teenage girl, is recovering from a disastrous early marriage. Spurred on by a community program of women telling their stories, she asks her mother Magdalena to record the story of her growing up and that of her best friend, Lucia.
