Partially blinded by an unknown illness aged 4 and sent out to work on the tough streets of Kano in Nigeria aged 9, Aisha Sani Abdullahi's life chances were not great. However, a chance encounter sent Aisha's life in a completely different direction.

Beautifully shot and musically lush, Aisha's Song is a touching and uplifting story of female empowerment from a part of the world where women are all too often overlooked.
