At 16, Nisha leads a double life. With her family she is a conscientious and well-behaved Pakistani daughter, and with her friends she is an ordinary Norwegian girl. When her father catches her with her secret boyfriend, he and her mother see no other choice than to kidnap her and send her to live with their family in Pakistan. Iram Haq’s second feature WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY is a touching, superbly acted and highly relevant film about being torn between two radically different cultures.
WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY is the centerpiece screening of the festival.
