About this submission

Happy Birthday, Momo! is based on a true story of a Ugandan girl.

Momo, a 24 year old Ugandan girl, dreads her birthdays because they remind her of the sexual assault she experienced as a little girl, on her 8th birthday.

Since then she has lived in the shadow of depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder and suicidal tendencies that are heightened on the anniversary of her assault; her birthday.

As she battles her mental demons and severs her closest ties, the redemption of love comes from the least expected place.
