Based on the best-selling novel by Miriam Toews, Women Talking follows a group of women in an isolated religious colony as they struggle to reconcile their faith with a series of sexual assaults committed by the colony's men.

Coming together to figure out how they might move forward and build a better world for themselves and their children, they’re faced with two options: leave, or stay and fight.

Nominated for two Oscars®.
