Every 11 seconds somewhere in the world a girl is a victim of female genital mutilation (FGM). It particularly happens in the desert regions of Africa where the cruel ritual is a wide spread tradition. The affected women are mostly traumatized their whole life. The movie follows Zion Melak, who is herself affected and actively opposing FGM.
