Sonita is a normal teenage girl with heaps of attitude. She idolises Rhianna, gossips with the other girls and fights with her older brother. She dreams of being a famous rapper one day.
But as an Afghan teen living in Tehran, her dreams are dangerous: the Iranian government doesn’t allow girls to sing, and at home, she is expected to become a teenage bride. Stopping at nothing to achieve her dreams, Sonita’s inspirational and heartwarming story shines a light into the lives of ordinary people in Iran and Afghanistan, too often seen as just numbers in a news report.
