Based on the real-life testimony of activist Ifrah Ahmed, this affecting and informative drama stars Aja Naomi King as an asylum-seeker to Ireland fleeing war-torn Somalia.


When she undergoes medical examination, the truth of the injuries she incurred during childhood FGM surgery are revealed. Empowered in her new situation she turns her attention to bringing about change, incurring resistance from her family and wider circle as she takes on community leaders and political leaders to demand an end to this practice.


Director Mary McGuckian draws attention to the issue itself while raising awareness of the power of the individual to speak out.
