Mahmona Khan

Dirty snow

We meet four girls. They are part of both Norwegian and Pakistani culture, and are close friends. When one of them is tricked by a Norwegian-Pakistani boy, and raped, followed by a threat to her life if she reveals the truth, the girls understand something must be done. An important motivating force in this struggle, is Charlotte, who was also abused by the same boy.

A gripping story from Oslo’s Norwegian-Pakistani circles.
