A Walk to Beautiful is an award-winning feature documentary about five Ethiopian women reclaiming their dignity. Rejected by their husbands, having undergone horrifying childbirths, and alone, these women go on a walk and find true beauty.
The women suffer from loneliness and shame. In the depths of Africa, these women have few options for a cure. They decide to walk slowly, painfully, and united to Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital. The documentary starts in the villages of Ethiopia before we hit the road on a quest.
In Ethiopia, a full 1/3 of women who experience any sort of complication during childbirth die. The other 2/3 usually wish they had died, as well. This documentary still manages to be both cinematic and uplifting – despite the crushing subject matter and many obstacles along the way.
