A woman types a story in a room far from home. The plot is simple. She is conjuring another woman: a woman with a secret strapped to her heart. But whose hand is on the trigger of this tale?

Woman Bomb presents the last twelve and a half minutes of the life of a female suicide bomber. What are the motivations, political and otherwise, that urge some women to 'die to kill'?
