Documentary about Senegalese rap star Fatou Mandiang Diatta, alias Sister Fa who fights with her music against female genital cutting. It is not easy for women to be successful in Senegal’s male-dominated rap scene. Sister Fa did it. Subjected to female genital mutilation as a child, the Queen of Hip Hop now campaigns to protect Senegalese girls from a similar fate. In the documentary film Sarabah, she returns to her native village to try to put an end to this centuries-old tradition through music and education.
