The women of an isolated religious colony reveal a shocking secret about the colony’s men. For years, the men have occasionally drugged the women and then raped them. The truth comes out and the women talk about their new situation.
While Women Talking sometimes forsakes entertaining drama in favor of simply getting its points across, its message is valuable — and effectively delivered.
