    Autobiografisch geprägtes Coming-of-Age-Drama der norwegisch-pakistanischen Regisseurin Iram Haq: Die 15-jährige Nisha lebt ein Doppelleben – als traditionsbewusste pakistanische Tochter und als moderne norwegische Jugendliche.

    Fifteen year- old Nisha lives a double life. At home she obeys the traditions and values of Pakistani family life, but outside with her friends she is just like any other westernized Norwegian teenager. One day, Nisha´s two worlds brutally collide when her father catches her in bed with her white, Norwegian boyfriend. Nisha is kidnapped by her parents and sent to live in Pakistan. At first, Nisha feels alone and afraid in the strange, new land, but then slowly she starts to discover her parents culture in a new way.
