Little Star Rising is a feature-length documentary about a young woman whose first memories are those of walking in front of a tank with her mother and sister, banished from a village where she was born. When you see her today, you would never guess the story of her childhood. She is that person in the room that will have the broadest smile, that person in the group that will tell you all will be well, that lady in your city that will kick you in the butt and make you fight for your happiness. Whatever happens, she has seen worse. She is Nudžejma Softić, the woman who put her running shoes on at the age of 28 and by the age of 30 became one of the first women to run a marathon in Europe while wearing a hijab and the first covered European to compete at the IronMan triathlon.
