"Nine unforgettable girls - striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits - spotlighted in a film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. With stories by nine celebrated writers, voiced by nine renowned actresses ..., Girl Rising introduces Sokha, an orphan who rises from a Cambodian dump to become a star pupil; Suma, who writes music to endure forced servitude in Nepal; Ruksana, an Indian 'pavement-dweller' whose father sacrifices his own needs for her dreams; and six other heroines. The girls are unique, but the obstacles they face are ubiquitous. Like the 66 million girls in the world who dream of going to school, what they want most is to be students. Now, by sharing their personal journeys, they have become teachers."--

"Unter den Augen des Löwen" erzählt am Beispiel einer Familie die blutigen Umbrüche im Äthiopien der 1970er Jahre.

Dawit, der Sohn des bekannten Arztes Hailu, schließt sich gegen den Willen des Vaters einer revolutionären Studentengruppe an. Als der Kaiser 1974 tatsächlich gestürzt und die jahrhundertealte Monarchie gewaltsam abgeschafft wird, kommt eine kommunistische Gruppierung an die Macht, die das Land in einen verheerenden Bürgerkrieg führt. In den Kriegswirren gerät Hailu in Schwierigkeiten, als er einer jungen Frau, die gefoltert wurde, hilft zu sterben. Dawit geht erneut in den Untergrund. Inzwischen ist sein enger Kindheitsfreund Mickey zu einem hochrangigen Polizisten aufgestiegen. Familienbande und Freundschaften sehen sich brutalen Prüfungen ausgesetzt
