Synopsis

Subira, 11, is a free-spirited young girl raised in an orthodox Muslim community on the remote island of Lamu, Kenya. She dreams of being free to swim in the ocean, but her mother wants her to follow tradition and agree to a traditional, arranged upper-class marriage. Subira, however, has other plans.
