A disabled, black, lesbian woman is triggered, releasing suppressed traumas of a gang rape and brutal attacks when she connects to a state of creative “flow” by picking up a stick. The animated hybrid story of Chuma Somdaka, studying business in Cape Town, finds her living rough on a bench for 3 years. She discovers her gift of art in a transformative moment setting in motion an empowering healing journey, but meets new societal challenges in her desire to remain connected to her bliss.
