Aïcha is a well-adjusted woman in her forties. After her husband died, she has dedicated her whole life to Salim’s education, her son now eighteen years old. They live in Charkhi, a small village in the Pakistanese Punjab. Salim is a gentle daydreamer who has secretly fallen in love with Zoubida. We are in 1979, under the martial law imposed by General Zia-ul Haq. The country is entering a phase of Islamisation. Salim drastically changes. He neglects Zoubida and joins a group of Islamic fundamentalists. Aïcha is worried. Events move faster as a group of Sikhs has come from India for a pilgrimage. One of them is searching for his sister Virou, who was captured by the Muslims in 1947. Suddenly, past resurfaces.

“I do not consider myself as a woman making films, but rather as someone telling stories to nurture our comprehension of the world, our past and present, in order to better clarify our future”. Sabiha Sumar
