Event Originally produced by Film Movement in 2013.
Summary It's snowing in Kabul, and gregarious waiter Mustafa charms a pretty student named Wajma. The pair begins a clandestine relationship - they're playful and passionate but ever mindful of the societal rules they are breaking. After Wajma discovers she is pregnant, her certainty that Mustafa will marry her falters, and word of their dalliance gets out. Her father must decide between his culturally held right to uphold family honor and his devotion to his daughter. Winner of the Screenwriting Award and Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize in the World Cinema Category at the **Sundance Film Festival.** *"A sober, downbeat indictment of a patriarchal society's traditional right to uphold family honor." - Alissa Simon, **Variety***
