Documentary offering a personal profile of the critically acclaimed artist, chronicling her journey from refugee immigrant to pop star over a 22-year period. When her family fled Sri Lanka to the UK, she became Maya, a precocious and creative immigrant teenager. Later, the world met her as M.I.A. when she emerged on the global stage, having created a mash-up, cut-and-paste identity that pulled from every corner of her journey along the way - a sonic sketchbook that blended Tamil politics, art school punk, hip-hop beats and the ultra-confident voice of a burgeoning multicultural youth.
