With her uncompromising lyrics against all forms of oppression, Swedish rapper Silvana Imam has taken Scandinavia by storm. She uses her razor-sharp tongue to spotlight movements taking place in today's society, embodying the voice of a new generation along the way. This film follows Silvana from underground artist to icon, as she wins several major awards and forms an almost mythical relationship with Swedish pop-artist, Beatrice Eli.
However, after just one year in the limelight, it all came to a sudden halt. Silvana crashes under the pressure, fed-up with the implications of being labeled a “strong female.” She decides to start showing new sides of herself “because there are no super-heroes, just human beings.”
