A hybrid documentary film that explores the current feminist movement in urban Pakistan through the eyes of organizers of the Aurat March (Women's March) as we countdown to the event, to take place on 8th March 2020. We explore the fault lines of the movement and the massive mainstream backlash against it. We weave in and out of the organizers’ private and public spaces, finding a tightly knit community of women connected deeply to each other through love and labor, accessing intimately a sisterhood of young feminists in Karachi who are changing the face of the city and its culture through their sometimes quiet, sometimes raging resistance.
