I am Fatou

Fatou is a 23-year-old Italian girl of Senegalese origin. She lives in a suburb of Rome with his mother, who would like to educate according to the rigid impositions of her culture of origin. But Fatou is looking for her own identity that combines his black Muslim being with Italian society, and unlike most of his peers, the social stigma of the immigrant is imprinted on her, who isolates her and reduces her friendships with other young children of foreigners. Her authentic passion and screen against prejudice is singing: music is what will never betray herself.
