About the film

A family from a persecuted minority sect discuss the discrimination they face over a family get-together when one family returns to Pakistan after 8 years.

Director’s Note

I myself belong to this minority community and being a part of this family gave me an inspiration to make the film. Our family has seen and experienced discrimination in all shapes and forms which has lead to most of the family taking refuge abroad.
