With the help of a human trafficker (Barkhad Abdi), she finds refuge in Ireland where she vows to devote her life to stopping the practice of female genital mutilation. With allies that include her friend Amala (Martha Canga Antonio), and Irish politicians Emer and Joe Costello (Orla Brady and Stanley Townsend), Ahmed embarks on a quest to bring her campaign to a global stage.
