IN SEARCH... raises the question: why do mothers allow their daughters to undergo female genital mutilation (FGM)? The Kenyan director Beryl Magoko, who now lives in Germany, gave into peer pressure and chose to be “circumcised” as a young girl. She thought it was simply a rite of passage, but why did nobody tell her how painful and humiliating it would be? Now she knows that reconstructive surgery is a possibility, but she’s unsure whether this is her opportunity to feel complete again.
