Pray the Devil Back to Hell is a powerful documentary about the brave women of Liberia who stood up and said no more to war. Through their sheer determination and grit they were able to transform their country. Liberia had suffered over a decade of war between the army of dictator Charles Taylor and the rebel warlords - boys were conscripted, families torn apart, there were mass killings and rapes and towns were plundered and destroyed. In this atmosphere the women put their lives on the line to force the battle crazed factions to the negotiating table and were instrumental in bringing a lasting peace to their country. In a relentless pursuit of peace, the women of Liberia show us how community, love and perseverance can change the fate of a society.
