An audience favourite at LIFF 2022, Saim Sadiq’s dazzling debut feature is a bittersweet tale of repressed desire and the quest for individual freedom.
Unassuming Haider Rana, has a seemingly happy arranged marriage and an ordered family life, living under the same roof as the rest of the Rana clan and his strict patriarchal father.
When Haider secretly becomes a backing dancer for an erotic dance cabaret and falls for glamourous trans starlet Biba, family ties begin to strain.
