Radio Azad presents the one time screening of an incredible film: «Saawan». There will be Q&A with the Writer/Producer after the film.

Saawan is inspired by a true story of a polio stricken 9 year old Baluchistan boy. It is a journey of courage, resilience, humanity over the norms: feudalism, ignorance, and terrorism. He was rejected by his father, hated by society, harassed by his peers, was forced to vacate the valley in which he lived. But he lives by memories of his mother, and begins a journey to the city; accomplishes self rehabilitation, comes a friend to a spirit and then meets his new best friend, a three legged dog.
