A woman abducted as a child in Northern Uganda by an LRA commander in a horrific attack on her village is forced to join the rebel group and only finds freedom after the LRA are pushed out by the Ugandan army. She has two children with her abductor having been made his concubine. Though peace has returned she can't enjoy it as the obsessed commander sneaks back from Central Africa Republic and is now pursuing her. However her uncanny sixth sense keeps one step ahead but she is running out of options as he closes in on her, re-awakening the horrors of the past.
