First Aired: September 18, 2007

“Lumo” examines the use of rape as a weapon in war, detailing the experiences of an African woman who, in 1994 at the age of 20, was brutally assaulted by soldiers in eastern Congo. The attack caused a fistula, a condition that can be marked by incontinence and the inability to bear children. As a result, her fiancé left her; and many in her family and village shunned her. The documentary follows her to a Goma hospital, where she undergoes surgeries in hopes of correcting the problem.
