According to Tajjab, Sharif owes him his life and has a duty to fight for an independent Kashmir. Torn between his new life with Lisa and his duty to family and country, Sharif suddenly finds himself under incredible pressure. Lisa does not understand the reasons for the changes in Sharif’s behaviour. After being followed and questioned by the police, Lisa learns of the dangerous situation that Sharif is being pulled into and slowly realises that the only way she can save him is to betray him. . . . Director Miguel Alexandre’s TV movie is an astute political drama that’s won a couple of major prizes in Germany.
