Sixteen year-old Nisha lives a double life. At home with her family she is the perfect Pakistani daughter, but when out with her friends, she is a normal Norwegian teenager. When her father catches her in bed with her boyfriend, Nisha’s two worlds brutally collide. A gripping and moving story about growing up in between two cultures, identity and belonging, and the turbulent journey of love and despair between one teenage girl and her family.
