Power Of The People

Power of The People follows a young woman's journey to find her own voice as a racialized person in Finland. Laura has a Finnish mother and an African father. Though she has lived almost all of her life in Finland, she is often seen as an immigrant or a foreigner by locals. Feeling she has no future in Finland & questioning her direction in life, she travels to England & then to Chicago. Through her studies & her poetry, Laura struggles to understand how she will be able to make the change she wants. She meets younger and older activists in the hope of discovering different ways of fighting for social change. Hearing how some have succeeded and some have failed, Laura comes to see that realizing her goals is going to be more difficult than she thought. Returning to Finland, she faces a new challenge to find a way to make her voice heard in the place she wanted to leave behind. With all the new information and knowledge she has gathered on her travels, what kind of activist will she be?
