United in love, separated by war, Aziza and her husband find themselves at opposite ends of a wartorn Congo.
When the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo breaks out in 1996, Aziz and her four children are in the town of Bukavu, while her husband and the children’s father is trapped in Kinshasa. It will take six long years before they see each other again.

Lewat-Hallade has painted a moving and perceptive filmic portrait of a family determined to survive circumstances that have seen thousands of other families fall apart. Love In The Time of War is a young female director’s story about a woman who knows that as long as her fellow sisters continue to endure the horrors of a war directly targeting the female body, she will not find peace.
