Zaya is a 12 year old girl who dreams to be a superhero. Her definition of her superpowers are to wear colourful clothes, having a cape, and to have red hair. She wants to save the world by eradicating “black masked people”. Her journey proceeds when she spots a person wearing a burqa and thinks that she is after her life. Having the first two “super powers” on her list, Zaya is determined that the only way she can defeat this person is by enabling her third superpower that is getting the red hair. Who’s Next? is a story about learning about identity, perception and not to judge a book by its cover.
