  • Year2017
  • Duration82 min

Co-directors Patrick Farrelly and Kate O’Callaghan follow female genital mutilation activist Jaha Dukureh on her mission to bring awareness to – and ultimately stop – this millennia old practice. Now living in America, the native Gambian has already brought the issue to the attention of former president Barack Obama and, despite widespread conservatism, is taking her message back to her home country.
