"A story of love, revolution and betrayal, No More Tears Sister explores the price of truth in times of war. Set during the violent ethnic conflict that has enveloped Sri Lanka over decades, the film recreates the courageous and vibrant life of renowned human rights activist Dr. Rajani Thiranagama. Mother, anatomy professor, author and symbol of hope, Thiranagama's commitment to truth and human rights led to her assassination at the age of 35. This documentary recounts her dramatic story through rare archival footage, intimate correspondences, and poetic recreations, exposing the high price that this revolutionary woman paid for her pursuit of justice."
