Description

A moving tale of lives affected by conflict in Kashmir. Teenage footballers Bilal and Khaled attempt to understand what it means to be free in the most densely militarised region in the world. Psychiatrist Dr. Baig, setting out to cure a nation of its rage, struggles against his dead son's accusations. Will the shapeshifting Djinns that loom between the spirit realm and the real ever be contained in the Eidgah, or will they continue to haunt the land? Bring your ID. Fresh from a sold-out 5-star run at Cambridge.
