DIFRET has many shades of meaning in Ethiopia's native language, Amharic. It can mean "to dare" and "to have courage" but it can also mean "to be violated."

Like its title, the film represents many things. It's a work of fiction based on a true story of courage and change; it's one of the only films from Ethiopia shot on 35mm film; and it received international recognition in the form of executive producer Angelina Jolie Pitt. But above all, DIFRET tells the story about a traditional practice through the experience of one frightened girl caught in a whirlwind beyond her control.
