In 2012, 15 year-old Malala Yousafzai was targeted by Taliban assassins after daring to speak out against the closing of schools to girls in her area. Miraculously surviving a gunshot to the head, Malala has used her horrific experience to promote peace and advocate for access to education, especially for girls who are at risk of being denied this right. With intimate footage filmed during 18 months with Malala and her family, this documentary from Oscar-winning director David Guggenheim charts her rise to prominence on the international stage, the reprisals from the Taliban leading to her assassination attempt, and her defiant recovery.
