Lionhearted

8 Year old Rida tells us about her journey, the difficulties of her escape from Afghanistan, and her dark past overshadowed by the Taliban.

Rida is 8 years old. The extroverted girl fled with her family from Pakistan to Europe. She is now living in Hotel City Plaza, a self-organised refugee shelter in Athens.
Rida is playful and witty. At the same time she seems mature and far older than her age. She tells us about her journey, the difficulties of her escape and her dark past overshadowed by the Taliban. Despite everything she’s been through, we get to know a self confident, resourceful and imaginative personality with a lion’s heart. How much of her childhood innocence can she preserve? Can Athens become her new home?
