Baba, a young Ghanian woman, goes in search of her father for his blessing
on her impending marriage to the young man she loves. Her joy at finding him
turns into a nightmare as he insists she submit to his choice of marriage to
an old man, and that she undergo female genital mutilation as is the custom
in his tribe. She is forced to flee her father's village, seeking refugee

system. Honorable Mention, Sundance Film Festival 2003
