    • Synopsis
    • Nasir is a gentle man with a hard life.
      In spite of it all, Nasir remains optimistic. He writes love letters to his wife and declaims his poetry, which silences even the most idiotic loudmouth.
      Nasir is also a Muslim in India, where Hindu nationalism has taken on ever more virulent forms in recent decades.
      A candid exposé of life as a second-class citizen, living in a toxic intolerant society on the edge of inevitably exploding.
