The documentary  throws a spotlight on the challenges faced by sexual assault victims having to deal with the military justice system. 

Femmes au combat openly questions both the efficacy of courts martial and the measures taken by the  Canadian Forces leadership under  OPERATION HONOUR to change the military culture.
