About Power Strip:

In Power Strip, Yasmin, a young Syrian refugee spends her days tethered to an electric power strip in a Greek refugee camp. Once a middle-class student in Aleppo whose life was dictated by the expectations of men, her sheltered existence has been shattered by a brutal civil war. In the war-torn world of the refugee camp, Yasmin finds that she must betray everything she once knew and valued in order to survive.

Our Power Strip Review

Power Strip is a right-now story freighted with all the tales of virgins and pillage the world has ever seen.
