Two clans on either side of a river have a visceral hatred for each other. The conflict turns ugly; everyone is on edge and going out means risking your life. The film depicts the land disputes of two families whose hatred and resentment of each other is passed down from generation to generation.
Homage to women who, despite losing loved ones, do everything they can to preserve the family unit, this stunning film is the story of two women, in a remote Muslim community, who confront an escalating blood feud and reach deep into themselves in hopes to undo the feud stretching back generations. It highlights one of the many forgotten conflicts throughout the world.
