     Sarah Raza has recently become Dr. Raza, a transformation accompanied by the most difficult struggle to gain freedom, from being the daughter of a family with uncompromising views on how she must live her life.

As her day at the hospital progresses, she learns what atrocities Karachi, a city where women are seen as mere articles of use, hides under cover of its economic progress.

She is rattled to learn that a woman’s job is to give birth to sons, and failing to do so is punishable. The reality of a patriarchal society is exposed ruthlessly to her as women who have been burnt, beaten, and otherwise tortured by their husbands, in-laws, and –in one case- a rejected suitor, die right in front of her eyes.

Her final test is a five-year-old girl, Iritiqa’s death. Will she give up? Or will she fight for all these women who die in front of her every day?
Our boys: Faris has his life completely planned out. He knows exactly where he would be in ten years and he has no time to waste. But when someone he trusts, hurts him in an unbelievable way, Faris’s life is turned upside down.

 

Ruined by a person and isolated by his parents; Faris must find his way back to life and recovery before the darkness consumes him. Would he be able to fight back and help those who had suffered like him, or give in to the depression that surrounds him and threatens to take his life?
