Easy Lessons

International Competition

(Hungary / 2018 / 78’)

Kafiya is only 16 years old, but her mind's already been made up. Her hero is Iman, the supermodel and actress who Yves Saint Laurent himself called "the woman of his dreams". And her plans for the future are very different from those that would be waiting for her in her home country. That's why she decides, while still a child, to leave Somalia behind and flee to Hungary. But there are so many things she still has to learn - and not all of them are taught in school books. Following her in class, on dates with her boyfriend and on the phone with her mother to explain the motives behind her choices, Easy Lessons sketches the profile of a "little woman" on her way to becoming an adult and finally being able to call herself free.
