Bike Bird

Nahid (12) is an asylum seeker in Norway. She has a dream she wants to realize, which turns out to be difficult for her: She wants to learn how to ride a bike. Her parents won’t allow it, fearing for her reputation if they’re deported. Girls who ride bikes are frowned upon in Afghanistan. But Nahid is a fighter, and she won’t let anyone get in the way of her dreams.

Bike Bird is a visual story wherein the effort to stay balanced on a bicycle becomes a metaphor for balancing between two different cultures.
