Zamda lives in a makeshift shelter in Pakistan with other displaced people. One wall is covered with photographs of missing loved ones; Zamda, a guarded young woman trying to hide her despair, is seen pasting her husband’s picture up with the rest. Amid the shelter’s bustle, she finds solace in friendship with a younger girl who makes her a gift of an inspiring drawing. She also senses her husband’s presence, reminding her of love’s enduring strength, but it is impossible to avoid seeing the hated Rusul, who was responsible for her exile but who is now in the same shelter. Zamda’s inner turmoil and the chaos around her are beautifully interwoven to bring home the daily reality of what it means to be displaced.
