This film follows Swedish rapper Silvana from underground artist to icon, as she wins several major awards and forms an almost mythical relationship with Swedish pop artist, Beatrice Eli. However, after just one year in the limelight, it all came to a sudden halt. Silvana crashes under the pressure, fed-up with the implications of being labeled a ‘strong female.’ She decides to start showing new sides of herself ‘because there are no super-heroes, just human beings.’
