Another harsh story about the gang rape of a young girl. The justice system in Pakistan is nothing more than a joke. This story is about the injustice she received at the hands of her government and the destruction of her family at the hands of her rapists.

This movie is not an entertainment but a documentary about the raping culture in Pakistan. This movie will tell you the Pakistan police force and the hospitals are not equipped to carry out forensic science. If you love knowledge, I suggest you to watch it. It is a short documentary & good. Not boring at all!

It's an important issue (plus) but a typical Frontline episode (minus). Full-on American media outrage-of-the-moment at a "barbaric" court system which is biased against women trying to press sexual assault charges.

Actually, I personally believe that this movie is WORTH SEEING....

Not worse seeing!

Though I did fast forward through some but not that much....
