Based in the heart of Lahore, the story takes place in a house full of daughters, teeming with the vibrancy of life but restricted to bloom. It is the story of a girl who challenges the mind set that closes all doors of Light on women of the house and considers them nothing more than a machine that produces children.

“Bol” is a roller-coaster of emotions. It questions the worth of human being, be it a woman or a person born with a birth of defect. It questions the authority of reproducing human beings into this world without taking responsibility of acknowledging their worth. The Write / Director of the movie says…“Having been so blessed in life, I often think of the things that I should be grateful for. The list seems to be never ending, but invariably it ends at one thing…that I was born as Man. Nothing in the world scares me more than the thought of being born a woman or eunuch in a country like Pakistan, where obscurantism has deep roots. It is very unfortunate that we make tall claims, full of pride, about the rights of women granted by our religion and yet when I look around in the underdeveloped Muslim countries in general and Pakistan in particular, I find the found reality to be the polar extreme. Tragically, our interpretation and application of religion seem to begin and end with women. Leaving the five percent of the urban educated elite aside, women seem to be the playground (battleground) where we practice a medieval form of religion.”
