No Ratings Yet

In Hajipura, a village where modern society and its values are only ever heard of as stories of a different world, not having a male ‘waris’ (inheritor) is a constant source of grief for Dewan Muhammad and his family. Their only sources of joy are the sheep, listening to gossip at the Bethak, and the annual festival of Baisakhi.

This year’s Baisakhi is special for Dewan because an old friend of his, Ali Muhammad is coming from Saudi Arabia; But Ali’s story is as broken as a man’s can be, with six sons but no ‘waris’ who will follow in his footsteps. 

Dewan’s days of playing like a child and working mindlessly are over, and he must come to terms with the reality of his circumstances. Torn between the appeal of Ali’s ideas, his daughter Shabana’s curiosity about women’s roles in urban life, and the customs of Hajipura, Dewan must finally make a choice. He must find his own waris!
