Based on a remarkable true story, an unforgettable Somali girl risks her life on the migrant journey to Europe to run in the Olympic Games At eight years of age, Samia lives to run. She shares her dream with her best friend and neighbor, Ali, who appoints himself her "professional coach." Eight-year-old Ali trains her, times her, and pushes her to achieve her goals. For both children, Samia's running is the bright spot in their tumultuous life in Somalia. She is talented, brave, and determined to represent her country in the Olympic Games, just like her hero, the great Somali runner Mo Farah. For the next several years, Samia and Ali train at night in a deserted stadium as war rages and political tensions continue to escalate. Despite the lack of resources, despite the war, and despite all of the restrictions imposed on Somali women, Samia becomes a world-class runner. As a teenager, she is selected to represent her country at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. She finishes last in her heat at the Games, but the sight of the small, skinny woman in modest clothes running in the dust of athletes like Veronica Campbell-Brown brings the Olympic stadium to its feet. Samia sets her sights on the 2012 Games in London. Conditions in Somalia have worsened, and she must make the arduous migrant journey across Africa and the Mediterranean alone. Just like millions of refugees, Samia risks her life for the hope of a better future

"To ważna powieść. Zostawia nas z myślami o utraconym pięknie, młodości przeżytej w upokorzeniu, przyszłości, która nigdy nie nadejdzie".Roberto Saviano"Życzę Wam, żebyście mieli taką odwagę jak Samia w dążeniu do spełnienia Waszych marzeń". Giuseppe CatozzellaSamia jest somalijską dziewczynką. Bieganie ma we krwi. Ze swoich marzeń zwierza się Aliemu, przyjacielowi i pierwszemu trenerowi. Chociaż jej ojczyzna udręczona jest ciągłymi bratobójczymi walkami, Samia patrzy w przyszłość i czuje, że jej szczupłe nogi mają do spełnienia misję: mogą przyczynić się do wyzwolenia kraju, a zwłaszcza somalijskich kobiet. Nocne treningi na pustym stadionie i pierwsze sukcesy pozwalają jej zakwalifikować się na igrzyska olimpijskie w Pekinie. Dobiega wprawdzie ostatnia, ale staje się symbolem dla kobiet muzułmańskich na całym świecie. Wielkie nadzieje wiąże z igrzyskami w Londynie. Wyrusza w długą, niebezpieczną i wyczerpującą podróż, głęboko wierząc, że jej sen się kiedyś spełni."Poruszająca historia. Gdyby zdobyła Premio Strega, mogłaby dotarzeć do większej liczby ludzi, być może także do tych, którzy nie są obojętne losy imigrantów".La Repubblica

Samia vokser opp i Mogadishu i Somalia, et område hvor den fundamentalistiske gruppen al-Shabaab blir stadig sterkere. Det eneste Samia vil er å løpe — for landet sitt og for friheten. Ved hjelp av bestevennen Alì, som fungerer som trener, blir Samia stadig raskere, og snart vinner hun alle løp hun deltar i. Men da al-Shabaab tar over makten i området blir det stadig vanskeligere å få trent. Samia kan bare løpe etter at det har blitt mørkt, og iført heldekkende burka. Samtidig rykker krigen stadig nærmere. Kan hun bli værende i Somalia, eller må også hun legge ut på den store reisen mot friheten i Europa? Denne dokumentarromanen er basert på historien om Samia Yusuf Omar, som deltok i OL i Beijing i 2008, for så å miste livet som båtflyktning før OL i London i 2012
