"The practice of abduction into marriage is one of Ethiopia's oldest traditions. Hirut, a bright 14-year-old girl is on her way home from school when she is kidnapped. She tries to escape but, in an attempt to protect herself, mortally wounds her would-be husband. Difret tells the inspirational true story of Hirut and Meaza, the female lawyer who fought her case."--Container.
