Young Leyla grows up and lives in a place she is originally not from. Although she looks very different, she feels very much at home there.

One day Leyla, her mother, and her sister have to leave suddenly and travel to the windswept far away island of her grandparents.

Facing the hard challenges of feeling lost in a new place, adapting and learning a new language, Leyla meets a strange dark woman who guides her in staying true to herself.

The Home Within Me is about Leyla’s journey through several worlds, geographically, emotionally, and culturally. It is about feeling at home in her own story, about collecting, remembering and staying creative, and the courage to keep alive what’s important to her, no matter where she is.
