A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness

Pakistan, USA  ·  2015  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  40'  ·  o.v. Urdu

A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness follows the story of eighteen-year-old Saba, a Pakistani girl, who fell in love and eloped with her boyfriend only to find herself targeted by her father and uncle in an honor killing attempt. Saba miraculously survived and was supported by a local police officer who put the two men in prison. Initially, she was determined to go to trial, but her community pressured her to forgive them in order to bring peace back to the neighborhood and, above all, to release from prison the sole breadwinners of her large family. Pakistani law allows for the victims of honor crimes to forgive their perpetrators, allowing them to be freed and return home.
