Duhktar

Simple plot. A Pakistani mother who was sold into marriage at age 15 runs away from the tribal leader who was to wed her 10 year old daughter. The culture of this country is on display with violence connected to “honor” and its morally repugnant aftermaths. The clellphone culture seems way too advanced for the retrogressive society with male domination and female subserviency. You root for her to make her sucessful journey to her mother who her husband forbad her to see. She finds a protector who risks all to help her. Well done, I loved it.
