Ria, a seven-year-old girl growing up in a village, is led by her mother to a place where a group of women from her community awaits her. Here she is mutilated by an unqualified cutter, who completes the cultural FGM-ritual that ensures she will one day be taken as a wife. The child, once old enough, goes on to be forcibly married and moved away from her family to England. Eventually, Ria seeks help in escaping the life she is trapped in, but the life of her two younger sisters hangs in the balance. Can she change her elders' minds and prevent them from being led down the same path? Or will they become three more of 200 million women across the globe whose wings have been crushed by FGM?

Statement
Crushed Wings will be a voice for those who have suffered from the horrible practice and rituals of FGM and its consequences and for those who are suffering at present. It is based on a collection of stories told by many FGM survivors with different backgrounds. The film has a happy end showing that change is possible, encouraging communities to revise their ideas of mutilating a person and to break hugely impacting cultural-traditional dogmas and its sickening cycles, passed on through generations. It's time for a wake-up call and seen by a worldwide audience, the film will influence the minds of people globally with hopefully a positive outcome to the lives of many. - Lalit Bhusal
