After leaving her family in Manchester, a young Somalian woman named Kelet returns to her childhood city in Finland to pursue a career as a professional model. In the meantime, she is also performing in vogue balls, shedding her shy personality to become the confident star she knows she can be. With the support of her friends and ballroom community, her glamorous future seems within arms reach. Guided by journalist-turned-documentarian Susani Mahadura, the cinematic approach inspires a story of undaunted perseverance.
Complete with all the elegance of ballroom culture and the glamour of the fashion world, Kelet is a melange of beauty and personal expression as seen through the eyes of a young Black trans woman possessed with a fiery passion for mainstream attention.
