Two courageous women, Pakistani Director Sabiha Sumar and French-Indian actress Kalki Koechlin set off on an extraordinary journey through India and Pakistan. The conversation between the two women and their encounters with the people of the two countries give rise to a personal and poetic search that uncovers the voice of the silent majority and shows new perspectives on peace between the two nuclear powered neighbours that had lived together for hundreds of years.
After partition in 1947, Pakistan and India took two different paths: Pakistan went the Islamic way; India chose secularism. Despite this difference how did they both end up on the opposite shores of the same river, each country divided by its own religious fundamentalism?
