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. To set an example, Nisha's parents decide to kidnap her and place her with relatives in Pakistan. Here, in a country she has never been to before, Nisha is forced to adapt to her parents' culture.
Some viewers find the movie exaggerated and perhaps not real but I think the movie does a good job in exploring the relationship between immigrant parents and their children who have assimilated in the Western culture and don't have the same belief system as their parents.
All of the cliches shown are indeed the exact thought processes of immigrant parents unfortunately. An underrated film, put together with care and an eye for detail and depth.
