Quipu tells the story of Esperanza, who is fighting for justice after being sterilised against her wishes 16 years ago. Esperanza is just one of 300,000 women and 20,000 men who were sterilised during the 1995-2000 Fujimori government, as part of a government policy that was promoted aggressively in rural, impoverished, and indigenous communities. After extensive investigations by Amnesty International, it is now well known that many women were coerced into the procedure or did not give consent.
