Amina, an Egyptian housewife living in Los Angeles, must decide if she will circumcise her daughter, Suha, or if she will abandon this age old practice. Despite it's illegality, Amina feels that she must continue this tradition because of pressure she receives from her mother, Zeinab, when her husband is away on a business trip. Will she find the courage to confront her mother and defy tradition to save her daughter from the brutal psychological and physical effects of female genital mutilation, Or, will she submit Suha to the same horrifying fate? Amina's dilemma represents the dilemma of many women who live in denial of their own oppression and cultural abuse.
