To give shape to the endless days in a refugee camp, a group of girls from different countries come together to put on a production of The Trojan Women with the help of an aid worker. The girls come from everywhere from the Middle East to Africa, but they all connect fiercely with Euripides' play, which tells the story of the aftermath of the Trojan War through the eyes of the women in a conquered city. Soon, others are clamoring to join the production, and the roles encourage the girls to share their own stories of trauma in their pasts and uncertainty in their futures. The Refugee Women is an arresting and immediate tale of resilience.
