This documentary tells the story of Claudia Eunice Villegas González’s femicide case. Killed by her boyfriend in the city of Huehuetenango, Guatemala, the film follows the journey of Claudia’s family seeking justice. Through this emblematic femicide case,  Ni una menos introduces the viewers to the long years of struggle in Guatemala for the protection of women and women’s rights, and the challenges and promises of the 2008 Law against Femicide and Other Forms of Violence Against Women.
