'I wouldn't dream of trusting my family.' - Anita. In Pakistan, many women who decide to leave abusive marriages are signing their own death warrants. They risk being disfigured or murdered by men who believe it is the only way to restore honor to the family. Authorities in Pakistan rarely respond to reports of honor killing. The Human Rights Commission Pakistan and the Women Action Forum estimate that 1000 women are murdered each year, with little or no response from the government. At the Dastak women's shelter in Lahore, women accused of tarnishing the family honor find a safe haven. Here, receiving both counseling and legal advice. Kubra is one such woman. After enduring repeated beatings, the 28-year-old fled to Dastak. We meet Kubra--armed guard in tow--on her way to a meeting with members of her family. They entreat her to return. Eventually, she agrees. Three weeks later, she is murdered, shot to death in her sleep. Through Kubra's story, and the stories of other women at Dastak, the film creates a portrait of one institution that is protecting Pakistani women, at least the women who can make it there.

Rumidja, a 62-year-old widow, lives in Jakarta, Indonesia with her son Bakti and her 11-year-old granddaughter Tari. Since the fall of dictator Suharto seven years ago, she has witnessed the country passing through a tumultuous period of socio-political chaos. Rapid globalization and democratization has spawned a subculture of criminality and uncertainty. Islam, the largest religion in Indonesia, is trying to maintain order and discipline and is becoming increasingly fundamentalist in its tone, which has consequences on the everyday lives of all Indonesians, no matter their religion. Rumidjah, who is a Christian, has had more than enough of the capital's chaos of these last years. When her son Bakti converts to Islam to marry a Muslim girl, she seriously considers leaving the hectic city forever and moving to the safety of the countryside. The only thing tying Rumidjah to the city is the care for her granddaughter. She knows that for the 11-year old girl, there is no future in such a rural environment. Mechanization has made it almost impossible to find employment on the farms and survival as an old uneducated woman in the face of such brutal change is difficult. Rumidjah manages to find small comfort thinking of her little granddaughter whom she wants to get a good education, and who will certainly get further in life. Through her faith in God, Rumidjah doesn't lose hope for a better future.
