The film features the story of Malala Yousafzai. At 15 years old Malala was targeted and shot in the head for speaking out on behalf of girls’ education in her region of Swat Valley in Pakistan. Yousafzai recovered and continues to be an educational activist, pushing for the rights of children around the globe. In October 2014, she was announced as a co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, becoming the youngest-ever Nobel laureate.
