A true story based on the United Nations testimony of Ifrah Ahmed. Fleeing war-torn Somalia in 2006, she is trafficked to Ireland where as an asylum-seeking refugee, she undergoes a traumatic medical examination which reveals the extent of her mutilation as a child. Traumatized by the memory, Ahmed turns her experiences into a force for good, emerging as one of the world’s most foremost global activists against female genital mutilation.
