This film deals with a very difficult topic, female genital mutilation in Samalia. This is a true story of Waris, a young woman who dared to defy her family and leave her home to escape a very young marriage as a man's fourth wife. Waris then faces many challenges as she makes her way to London with very little English and the knowledge that things back home are worse than ever. There are some very desturbing images in this film but it is all dealt with very well. Everything becomes even more meaningful because it is a true story. My only critique is that it has a very abrupt ending and I would have liked a little more information about what Waris did after speaking at the UN.
