Als Kind entkommt die Menschrechtsaktivistin Clemantine Wamariya dem Völkermord in Ruanda. Sie erhält Asyl in den USA, hält heute Vorträge und setzt sich für Benachteiligte und Aufbauhilfe in Afrika ein. Eine inspirierende Lebensgeschichte, außergewöhnlich berührend erzählt. Menschenrechtsaktivistin und Yale-Absolventin Clemantine Wamariya setzt sich weltweit für Benachteiligte ein, hält Vorträge und TEDTalks und wurde von Barack Obama ans U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum berufen. Auf den ersten Blick ist ihr Leben eine Erfolgsgeschichte, doch in Wahrheit kämpft sie jeden Tag darum, ihre zerbrochene Welt wieder zu kitten. Als Sechsjährige musste sie an der Seite ihrer Schwester vor dem Völkermord in Ruanda fliehen. Sechs Jahre dauerte ihre Odyssee und führt sie durch insgesamt sieben afrikanische Länder. Im Flüchtlingscamp in Malawi, im Slum in Sambia, im Trubel des südafrikanischen Durbans überleben die Mädchen mit Ideenreichtum und der festen Absicht, ihr Schicksal nicht einfach hinzunehmen. Mit dreizehn erhält Clemantine die Chance auf ein zweites Leben: In den USA bietet man ihr Asyl, Schulbildung und jeglichen Überfluss der westlichen Welt. Sie nutzt diese Chance auf einen Neubeginn und beginnt, ihre Lebensgeschichte neu zu schreiben, Tag für Tag ein kleines bisschen. Mit beeindruckender sprachlicher Kraft erzählt sie, wie es ihr gelang, dem Genozid zu entkommen und sich auf ihre größte Stärke zu besinnen: die Macht ihrer Vorstellungskraft und der Geschichten, durch die sie überlebte.
