Colonel Honorine, more commonly known as "Maman Colonelle", works for the Congolese police force as head of the unit for the protection of minors and the fight against sexual violence. After working 15 years in Bukavu, in the east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, she learns that she has been transferred to Kisangani, where she must face new challenges. The film addresses the issues of violence towards women and children in the DRC, and the difficulty of overcoming the past through this portrait of an extraordinarily brave and tenacious woman fighting for justice.
