THEY’RE NOT CRAZY NOR THEY’RE TERRORISTS

Directed by Cecilia Barriga

Around 1984 a group of galician women, Dora Fernández, Josefa Romón, Fina Sánchez, Sara Guntin, Marisa Fuentes y Carmen Avendaño, had something terrible in common: children who had died from or were addicted to drugs. These tragic events led them to spontaneously join to fight tirelessly to defeat their enemy: drug-dealing.

Most of them were simple housewives, with no experience in public life ad no knowledge of the scheming and skulduggery carried out by rings of drug-dealers or the amount of corruption in justice and politics. These women were ready to give their own lives if necessary to save their children, or to avenge their deaths.
