Synopsis of the film:
Karachi, Pakistan. 24 April 2015. A car stops at a red-light. Inside

Moments before she was killed, Sabeen Mahmud, founder, and director of the non-profit cultural institution Peace Niche,had hosted a discussion on the unexplained and ongoing disappearances of more than 20,000 activists and civilians in the country.
Sabeen had been warned and advised to cancel the event but she went ahead insisting, “someone’s got to do this!”

In the wake of the killing, the director tiptoes „After Sabeen“ following her mother and friends to record notonly their memories and grief but their ongoing impetus to continue Sabeen’s work.
