Mary McGuckian's A GIRL FROM MOGADISHU is based on the powerful testimony of Ifrah Ahmed.
Fleeing war-torn Somalia in 2006, Ahmed is trafficked to Ireland where, as an asylum-seeking refugee, she undergoes a traumatic medical examination which reveals the extent of her mutilation as a child. Traumatized by the memory, she turns her experiences into a force for good, emerging as one of the world’s foremost global activists against Female Genital Mutilation.
