One girl attempts to learn a cultural rite of passage: to canerow hair. Through poetry and monologue she explores girlhood as a West African, Muslim Londoner. But from the straight hair of her styling doll to the cupboard room she prays in at school, she questions what it means to grow up in spaces not designed for her.
