As small child Laleh dressed up as princess, to await the rescuing prince. Then my mother said; "No Laleh, it is you who is the prince, you liberate yourself." Laleh followed her mother's advice and trough out her career she has taken care of the whole process herself. She is one of the few how's both a songwriter, producer and performer. This film is affecting musical portrait of Laleh Pourkarim, Sweden’s biggest female musical artist. She talks candidly about life and death, about her music and career. About coming to Sweden as a refugee child. About her parents' lives and deaths. And about the gift she received from them and the responsibility to manage it. It’s a film about Lalehs life and her freedom.
