Amélie Saillez’s documentary is a look at the condition of women in Pakistan through the struggle of an unusual couple: Abdul Sattar Edhi and his wife Bilquis Edhi. Together they have created the most effective social and medical assistance network in the country, the Edhi Foundation. Supported only by donations from Pakistanis, the Edhi Foundation has become the largest NGO in the country, built from a more or less structured network of buildings and crowded offices.
