(Producer) An experimental videorecording in which filmmaker Nandini Sikand poignantly presents her sister's triumphal recovery from the emotional and physical scars of breast cancer. This moving work looks at the myth of Amazonian women warriors who were said to have cut off their right breasts to become better archers. It also compares the legendary Amazonian battles to the war against breast cancer.
