Pray the Devil Back to Hell is an award-winning documentary about the absolute courage and determination of the Liberian women -- both Christian and Muslim -- who together prayed and silently protested the tragic civil war that was tearing their country apart. Dressed in white and armed only with their voices and their unity, they helped bring about a peace agreement that eventually led to democratic elections in 2006. These women are a living testament to the power of prayer, the power of sacrifice, and the power of ultimate faith in humanity.
