What Will People Say by Iram Haq— Synopsis
Sixteen-year-old Nisha is caught between two worlds. As the daughter of a conservative Pakistani family, she wants to please her parents. And as a first-generation Norwegian teenager, she wants to fit in with her peers. When Nisha begins to experiment with drugs, alcohol, and romance—all things that are considered normal coming-of-age experiences in Norway—there are extreme consequences from her strict Muslim family. Against her will, Nisha is put on a one-way flight to Pakistan and thrown into a culture she knows nothing about. After rumors about Nisha spread through their community, her father risks ostracizing his daughter and tearing his family apart to save face. Cinematically stunning and emotionally powerful, WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY captures the complex, multifaceted issues that arise when cultures clash in the modern world. (In Norwegian and Urdu with subtitles) —G.S.
