21 adolescent Malians chosen for their intelligence and curiosity traverse the Ségou region in a van. Workers accompany them from an association that protests against female genital mutilation. During screenings, discussions and a few downtime activities, they face off against political and spiritual authorities but still find the courage to denounce excision, a practice that affects 90% of Malian women. Back home, the young people will continue to be important to the cause.
