MIGHTY BE OUR POWERS - In war-torn Liberia, West Africa, women are victimized for years. While civil war rages, they are robbed, raped, and have their children abducted by soldiers, and they have no home to go back to. WE WANT PEACE FOR OUR CHILDREN - Overcoming differences in ethnic background, religion, and political view, Liberian women come together and stand up to bravely fight against the dictator, bringing an end to the war. Pray the Devil Back to Hell is a documentary about the extraordinary story of Leymah Gbowee, winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, and indomitable Liberian women, who risked their lives for peace.
