Synopsis
For Tamil people her name means 'Miss Victory', for the Sri Lankan government she is a terrorist under surveillance. Vetrichelvi was a fighter joining the Tamil Tigers at the age of only 17. During the 25 year-long Sri Lankan civil war, she lost one arm and one eye but also became known as a writer and as the Voice of the Tigers, the radical and charismatic radio speaker of the Tamil liberation movement. Now, just recently being released from jail, she is determined to tell the unknown story of female fighters and to find her former comrades and face her own past, even if it means risking life.
