What Will People Say (Hva vil folk si)

Rated NR 106 min. 2018

Sixteen-year-old Nisha lives a double life. When out with her friends, she's a normal Norwegian teenager. At home with her family, she is the perfect Pakistani daughter. But when her father catches her alone with her boyfriend in her room, Nisha's two worlds brutally collide. To set an example and escape the judgment of their peers, her parents send Nisha against her will to a small town in Pakistan to live with extended family. There, in an unfamiliar country surrounded by people she barely knows, Nisha must adapt to a rigid culture that denies her the freedoms she once enjoyed. A tense and moving drama about women's rights, immigrant identity, and familial duties. Based on director Iram Haq's own experiences as a young Pakistani woman in Norway.
