What makes her enterprise unique is that Mariam has lived her entire life in Burl El Barajneh, a refugee camp near Beirut, home to everyone on her team. The entertaining and inspirational Soufra follows the intrepid entrepreneur as, against all odds, she attempts to expand her business with a little help from Kickstarter.
