Teenager Kafia escaped a forced marriage in Somalia when she was just fifteen and fled to Europe all alone. Ever since, she has been living in a state children's home in Budapest, Hungary, and there she learns the language of her adopted home, goes to high school, prepares for the Hungarian graduation exam, and launches a modeling career. On the surface, everything seems fine. But beneath Kafia’s beautiful and confident exterior lies a heavy heart. Her repetitive daily routine revolves around constant dilemmas and self-doubt about leaving behind her Muslim culture and the world she knew from growing up. What does it mean, on the brink of adulthood, to break with your past and surrender to a new self in order to live in a new place? (Hungary, 2018, 78 min., Documentary)
