The trailer introduces us to an ordinary middle-class girl Jyoti, who goes to Mosul,Iraq with hopes of making a living. Then unfolds a series of gut wrenching events where she has no one to rely on but herself. Every moment is a fight between life and death. The character is shown as strong-willed, who is determined not to give up despite the physical and sexual assault she faces. The trailer showed strong acts of violence against the ones who were captured. War torn Iraq and it’s cinematography is presented well. The trailer seems promising.
