Beautiful to look at, and involving from the first, it's a movie about the fierce love of a mother protecting her daughter's innocence—and future— in a patriarchal society. Wonderful actors with faces the camera loves. Recommended.

An excellent film, goes slowly, but the pace is good nonetheless. Acting superb. Reviews have cited amazing cinematography of the region: nothing special here really. Totally realistic in its portrayal.

Allah Rakhi kidnaps her ten-year-old daughter Zainab to save her from a child marriage to a tribal leader. Their escape is a damning loss of honor for the two families, and a deadly hunt begins for them. Desperate for help, Allah Rakhi strikes an unlikely deal with a cynical ex-Mujahid truck driver to take them to Lahore. What follows is an epic journey through the sweeping landscape of Pakistan where the search for freedom and love comes with a price. 92%/69%
