Partition | 2008
Gian and Naseem are a latter-day Romeo and Juliet. With the partition of India and Pakistan sparking bloodshed between Sikhs and Muslims, their respective people might be mortal enemies but Gian and Naseem are determined to follow their hearts. He refuses to abandon his pledge to leave war and its atrocities behind, but she can't forget his courage and kindness in saving her from his countrymen's swords. As their love flourishes and eventually finds acceptance in Gian's village, the search for Naseem's family goes on. When it proves successful, their delicate world is shattered. A brief visit to see her family in Pakistan becomes a kind of imprisonment for Naseem, as her brothers and mother remain bitter about their fate at the hands of the Sikhs in Gian's village and refuse to let her return to India. Gian sets off on a journey across a land whose wounds are still raw, hoping against hope that he can bring home peace and harmony.
