Asha, a transgender woman from Pakistan, is struggling with her identity and place within her current culture and society. She is inspired by the first world countries and their progressive LGBT laws, but fearful of coming out and getting in trouble. She must choose to speak up for her rights or live like the rest of the transgenders who are marginalised and ridiculed in Pakistani society.
