Director Alexandria Bombach avoids the details of Murad's brutal captivity, showing instead the intense pressure and responsibility the 23-year-old feels as a spokesperson for her people.

Festivals like Sundance offer many films about activism and politics and human rights, but Alexandria Bombach's documentary On Her Shoulders feels decidedly different.
