Director Iram Haq’s compelling tale has been collecting awards worldwide since its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Outraged and under pressure from the community, he sends her off to Pakistan to ‘learn how to behave properly.’ Trapped in a land she doesn’t know, with a hostile extended family who see her as a shameful westerner Nisha is forced to make hard choices.
