Embarking on a series of frank discussions with other women who have experienced FGM/C, filmmaker Magoko considers whether she should take a journey into the unknown and have reconstructive surgery.
As a young girl growing up in a rural village in Kenya, Beryl thought that all women in the world have to be circumcised by going through Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM/C) at a young age; so she went through the ritual at a tender age as a rite of passage. Little did she know about the effects of FGM/C.
Many years later, she learns about a new reconstructive surgery that promises to give back what was lost once. In this engaging first-person film, Beryl Magoko explores the emotional dilemma by talking to other women who went through similar experiences.
Embarking on a series of frank discussions with other remarkable women, Magoko considers whether she should undergo the surgery, a journey into the unknown, with so much at stake.
