This is the story of a young Afghan girl who flees from her hometown in Afghanistan to avoid a watta satta marriage and ultimately lands in hands of a brothel-keeper in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. She was forcibly married thirty times, in locations across Pakistan. The girl now faces an uncertain future as if she goes back to Afghanistan, she might be killed by her family.
