Sixteen-year-old Nisha lives a double life: at home with her conservative Pakistani family, and with her friends, as a typical Norwegian teenager — partying and exploring relationships. Trapped between countries and perceptions of honor, Nisha is forced to find her own way in life. This drama untangles the complex relationship between a father and daughter and presents an empathetic perspective on family, community, and culture.
After the film, a discussion will be led by Leo Riegert, associate professor of German, and students from his course, “Challenging Borders.”
