About the Film: Through the lives of Hamza Jafri and his students, this film provides an insight into just what it takes to have a voice in an area known for gang warfare and a country where self expression and music is often drowned out by cycles of violence… A unique film project where two filmmakers Maheen (Pakistan) and Miriam (India) collaborate to string a new political discourse through music.

About the Film: Haidar, a taxi driver, dreams of going to India to see the Taj Mahal. The choice doesn’t seem strange for a man who believes that “love is everything”. The only problem is he lives in Pakistan! Why is Haidar’s dream so impossible to achieve? To see how Haidar’s dream can be given a voice and what it means for all of us, the filmmaker travels from India to Pakistan.
