Summary:
In WEAPON OF WAR military perpetrators unveil the hidden motives and strategies of rape as a war crime. In the Democratic Republic of Congo possibly hundreds of thousands of women and girls were brutally raped. An ex-rebel explains how he raped. Like for many, starting a normal life again is a struggle filled with trauma. In an attempt to reconcile with his past, he meets one of his victims. Captain Basima is working as a priest in Congo's army and confronts perpetrators of rape. He urges them to change. Just like he did.
