During the civil war in Sri Lanka, Vetrichelvi was the propaganda radio voice of the Tamil Tigers. Filmmaker Agnieszka Zwiefka (THE QUEEN OF SILENCE) follows her on a road trip to find former comrades and discover what happened to them after war. But then a much darker truth unravels. SCARS brings us the never told before story of forcibly recruited female fighters and sheds a new and controversial light on the unresolved conflict in Sri Lanka.
