A look at the events leading up to the Talibans' attack on the young Pakistani school girl, Malala Yousafzai, for speaking out on girls' education and the aftermath, including her speech to the United Nations.
The film tells Malala’s story but focuses on her current life: how she is growing up and coming to grips with her power as an agent of global change. She is more focused than ever on empowering girls through education, countering violence and forging new community leaders. At the same time, she is also just a teenager grappling with her beliefs on boys, homework, siblings, parents and the future –in themidst of an intense media spotlight. The film grants intimate access to Malala’s day to day life and how she balances it all.
