Hanging out with her friends, 16-year-old Nisha is a normal teenager, playing basketball, partying, drinking, and even smoking weed. But back at home, that life has to be kept secret, since she comes from a traditional Pakistani family with strict rules. One night, when Nisha’s father comes into her room and catches her in bed with a boy, he flips out. Severely disappointed in his daughter, who has dishonoured the family, and under pressure from his community, the father decides to set an example. He sends Nisha to Pakistan against her will. The lay of the land there is utterly different, but bit by bit, Nisha adapts to her new life – until she ends up in a predicament again. This compelling film with outstanding acting is a coming of age drama about a daughter caught between two cultures, and a father who loves his daughter, but is at the mercy of his system of values.
