French Premiere

In a conflict ridden Kashmir, a Muslim woman finds herself confronted with the administrative absurdities of her own country. Aasia is a “half-widow”, a spouse whose husband has disappeared but whose death is not ascertained. Having an eleven years old daughter and a sick mother-in-law to take care of, she attempts to get her missing husband’s death certificate from the government; but without any proof, the corrupt government officials keep turning down her request, blatantly making demands instead. Aasia will have to find the strength to come out from an unthinkable and absurd situation.

Based on many true stories from conflict ridden Kashmir, I am trying to portray the pain, struggle, suffering, resilience and the indomitable spirit of Kashmiri Half-widows and their children. Like any other conflict ridden place, women and children are the most affected here too. These half-widows and their children live an isolated social life and face a lot of harassment, sexual exploitation and humiliation.” Praveen Morchhale
