Young Londoner Cleo was given her 'gift' at age seven - except that 'gift' left her with type 3 Female Mutilation. How can Cleo love her body, when her husband brutally sexually assaults her? Finding strength after this hideous act, Cleo resolves to go against her family's wishes and seek reversal surgery. On her journey of healing, she's sent to live with Aunt Winnie and meets Eve, a fellow FGM survivor who is instantly drawn to her. Will Cleo set an example and empower Eve to stand against this practice, or will she give in to family pressure and finally embrace Aunt Winnie's deeply embedded traditional beliefs? A fight for love, hope and acceptance in a culture where a 'gift' can bear the ultimate price. Played by an all-female cast, this piece shines a light on a violent act nested in our society which is a transgression of human/women/children's rights.
