Amina lives on the edges of Mogadishu with her family in their damaged home. Her father is arrested because his art is censored and her brother is kidnapped and forced to become a soldier in Somalia's war. Although her mother and grandmother are still with her, Amina feels vulnerable and abandoned. She secretly creates her own artwork in the streets and on derelict buildings to give herself hope. Her artwork explodes into Mogadishu's underground world, providing a voice for people all over the city who hope for a better future.
