Description

Five girls build a future of hope.

The refugee crisis in Uganda is nothing new, but for the five young women whose paths we witness in director Gayle Nosal's  beautiful film, there are hopes and dreams. The climate for success is simply not set up for females in Uganda, let alone female refugees. Transcending the label ‘refugee’ has been especially challenging. But, confrontation with traumatic histories transforms into a sincere sisterhood among these girls who study diligently to earn their places in school. Through tenacity and imagination, can these young females truly push beyond their past and the struggles of the present to create their ideal futures? A riveting story that explores the meaning of courage, perseverance, and the importance of fighting that which will make us stronger. - Zarin Khan
