It is based upon a true story of Shamim Sarif's life, or at least a part of it.
In doing that, do you expect her to be politically correct or present it the way it was? I prefer the latter It's how it was for her and her partner, not how it should be in a perfect world. For a first time director, I think she did a good job. It's not a great movie, but it is entertaining. You can't deny the chemistry between the two main characters, either.
