Followed by Q&A with Syed Raza Aamir Hussain and Shaftaq Batool Raza, the real-life heroes behind the story

A gripping feature film based on the true story of Ayan, a young Pakistani salesman, who challenges the system when he discovers the devastating effects of the infant formula he is selling. Expertly straddling the line between documentary and fiction, this David-and-Goliath story is told partially through the eyes of a film crew making a documentary on Ayan’s astonishing findings. Bollywood star Emraan Hashmi (The Dirty Picture) and National Award-winning actress Geetanjali Thapa (Liar’s Dice, SFISAFF 2014) bring pathos, nuance and passion to their respective roles. In the hands of Oscar-winning director Danis Tanovic (No Man’s Land), this film becomes a powerful tale of a man who is willing to risk his life to expose a system where narrow interests prevail.
