Hind, 22, is a dealer’s daughter. Driven from her home at 14 because she had been raped, she dances at weddings and prostitutes herself. Officially Hind does not exist. She can’t find her birth certificate and therefore has no right to identity papers. Yet she dreams of a better future: of marrying her lover, regaining custody of her children, getting a job and a real home.
