Laura lives in Finland and has a European mother and an African father. She is a young woman who stands up against racism using poetry and activism. The film accompanies her on a trip to England and Chicago, where she encounters people facing the same issues: They talk about flight and belonging, gun violence, microaggressions, and trauma. Major questions of our time become palpable in this film through Laura’s eyes. How is change possible in entrenched structures? The answers Laura finds are not always full of hope, but her search inspires and uplifts nonetheless.
