On December 17th, 2011, Hend Nafea, a young woman from a traditional, rural Egyptian family joined in a protest in central Cairo. Three years later, she was sentenced to life in prison for her participation on that day. In this piece -- filmed a day after the sentencing, when emotions are still raw -- Hend tells the story from her perspective. She maintains her innocence -- and her pride, and grapples with the meaning of the sentencing for herself and her country.
