Synopsis:
When Jasmin’s parents decide to move their family back to her dad’s home country, Somaliland, she is faced with the biggest change of her life. She has to say goodbye to the familiar playgrounds in the Finnish suburbs, as well as her best friend Maryam. When she arrives, an avalanche of things hit her: the streets are not paved, people speak so loudly it sounds like arguing, there are no playgrounds, people don’t use cutlery for eating, camels roam the city streets. After recovering from her culture shock Jasmin starts to realise there is actually something familiar here; nobody stares at her for looking different like back in Finland. Maybe having two homes is not so bad after all?
