Description

This is the story of four girls from East Africa: an affluent 15 year old from Nairobi who enjoys the luxuries and opportunities of the west; a 16 year old Catholic who pays for her education working on the family farm on Mount Kenya; a 17 year old Muslim from a northern desert town where female circumcision is practiced and absolute deference to men is a daily part of her austere life; and a 15 year old Maasai girl who ran away to a charitable boarding school to escape an arranged marriage to an older man.
