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.
The film follows Silvana from an underground artist to the 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 comes to a sudden halt. Silvana crashes under the pressure, fed-up with the implications of being labeled as a “strong female”. She decides to start showing new sides of herself “because there are no super-heroes, just human beings.”
