"In the fictional village of Boswa, Kgosigadi, a woman of character, takes it upon herself to protest against a law that exiles women during the time of their moonblood. She is met with great anger and violence and for this act of protest, is stoned to death. It is Matla, her daughter, who will embark on a journey to seek justice for her mother’s brutal murder. Her journey becomes a spiritual one that causes her to understand that there is power in the blood that women shed every month, not shame. Seeing Red is a celebration of this power"
