A frank portrayal of Pakistan

A frank portrayal of the interactions between the various socioeconomic classes of Pakistan and also the status of women in those classes. Josh also raises serious questions about the prevalence of corruption in the local governments of Pakistan. As an American, I was able to gain a much better understanding of modern Pakistani culture and politics through this film.
