Allah Rakhi is a woman with a ten year old daughter living in the tribal lands of Pakistan. She was married off at fifteen, to a much older man. Now that same husband has agreed that their young daughter will marry a man in his sixties as a way of settling a tribal dispute. Allah Rakhi decides that she is not willing to let her daughter go through what she did, and decides to escape – a decision as brave as it is foolhardy. We follow this daring attempt and its consequences with our heart in our mouth, always just a step away from recapture.
