New England premiere

Based extensively on the director’s experience as a teenage daughter of Pakistani immigrants in Norway, the film represents a doomed quest to reconcile two worldviews and cultures that stand in fundamental opposition to each other. Pakistani immigrants living in Norway send their 16 year-old daughter away to live with relatives in Pakistan after she is caught kissing her secret Norwegian boyfriend, only to return to Norway after innocently bringing shame to the family yet again. Co-presented by the Scandinavian Cultural Center.

Speaker: Dr. Naheed Usmani, Professor of Pediatric Oncology at UMass Medical Center who founded a number of Pakistani organizations in the US and Pakistan.
