Silent Waters - Khamosh Pani

Sabiha SumarPakistan – 2003

In Pakistan during the late 1970s, widowed Ayesha lives with her beloved son, Saleem. Saleem is a content but slightly bored teenage boy, until two radical Muslims move into his village. Like the rest of the villagers, at first Saleem keeps a distance - and a sense of humor - between himself and the fundamentalists. But over time the radicals begin to win him over, turning the teenager into someone completely unrecognizable to his devastated mother.
