Summary:
A difficult journey that begins in loneliness and shame for thousands of Ethiopian women ends in a productive new life and hope for the future in this award-winning film. Shot against a starkly beautiful landscape, A Walk to Beautiful shares the inspiring stories of three women, rejected by their husbands and ostracized by their communities, who leave home in search of treatment for obstetric fistula. Once common in the pre-industrial United States, this life-shattering complication of childbirth is now relegated to the poorest regions of the world. In Ethiopia alone, there are an estimated 100,000 women suffering from untreated fistulas. In a courageous attempt to reclaim their lives, these women embark on a journey to a remarkable hospital, walking for hours to the nearest road; searching for public transportation to the capital, Addis Ababa. Finally, surrounded by women like themselves and a compassionate medical team of Western and African doctors who treat them with respect, they find a haven that they never imagined, transforming their long and arduous trek into a "walk to beautiful."

Special DVD features include: materials or educators; a link to the NOVA Web site; scene selections; closed captions; and described video for the visually impaired.
