With her uncompromising lyrics against all forms of oppression, Swedish rapper Silvana Imam has taken Scandinavia by storm. She has become an important part of the feminist and antiracist movement in Sweden. As for many, she is an energy source and a survival strategy. The 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 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.”
