All the Corsican women agree that violence must stop. Three thousand of them have already signed a manifesto. One thousand and seven hundred women have demonstrated against « the law of the gun ». But, what happens once they are back home ? Have they Ma naged to get rid of the cultural clamp of a clannish society ? Or are they quite unconsciously passing on the values they are fighting against ? Through the portrait of some women representative of different generations we will try to understand this social reality.
Our intimate and friendly approach shows these women in their everyday activities, struggling in the web of their contradiction.
