Arts Council of New Westminster and Massey Theatre presentation Doors open at 6:30pm. Movie at 7pm.

Canada, 2021 English, Urdu

Director: Haya Waseem

Sheila (Arooj Azeem) is a Pakistani Canadian teenager living in the suburbs. Nearing the end of first-year university and having fallen in love for the first time, with her classmate Eden, Sheila desires a freedom that her mother and father (played by Azeem’s real-life parents) are unwilling to offer. After Sheila has sex for the first time with Eden, he abruptly breaks up with her, and her sense of reality begins to unravel, further alienating her from her friends, family, and community. Azeem delivers an impressive breakout performance as a young woman finding autonomy and individuality while trying to simply belong.
