22 year old Zarina proves to be a rebel in a college elocution competition when she states her views on the dominant system of burkha (face veil) and teen talakh(Muslim divorce) as impositions of a select few leaders and male treachery.
Her video goes viral and the repercussions of her rebellious but secular views prove fatal.
Extremists headed by Munnawar, demand for her apology through agitations and threats as in his view she has insulted Islam and polluted its pious traditions. The whole atmosphere turns tragic when the extremists and the moderates meet.
Will Zarina prove to be a voice for many? Will Munnawar spare her as a representative of global female voices of the 21st century? Can this issue get resolved or remain unsolved is left to the worldview.
