No Fathers in Kashmir

5th March 2020

A teenage British Kashmiri, Noor, retraces her roots. She is joined by Majid, a local Kashmiri boy who is more smitten by her exotic foreignness than her obsession to unravel the mysteries of their disappeared fathers. Much against his better judgement, Majid finds himself guiding Noor to a forbidden area in the Indo-Pak border fraught with danger : wild bears, ghosts of the past and army patrols. They stumble upon a dark secret that they shouldn’t have seen and Majid’s worst fears are realised : they are set upon by an army patrol. Being British, Noor is released but Majid is detained for questioning. Having put him into peril, how far is Noor willing to go to have Majid released? And, can love ever be the same again for these two? This is a story of forgiveness and hope, seen through the playful eyes of innocent teenagers. From the world’s deadliest conflict, based on hundreds of true stories, this tender storm of first-love and heart-break echoes Kashmir’s own story in surprising and revealing ways.
