A story of a young man's queer coming of age amidst displacement, violence, and alienation
Kidnapped by his father on the eve of Somalias societal implosion, Mohamed Ali was taken first to the Netherlands by his stepmother, and then later on to Canada. Unmoored from his birth family and caught between twin alienating forces of Somali tradition and Western culture, Mohamed must forge his own queer coming of age.
What follows in this fierce and unrelenting account is a story of one young mans nascent sexuality fused with the violence wrought by displacement.
