Contents/Summary

Summary
The film deals with performative strategies to undermine the rigid gender norms in Afghan society: on the level of cinematographic staging, in political work and in everyday life. The protagonists of the film include a teacher who is also an actress, a policewoman whose second job is working as an action film director, an activist of the organization RAWA who advocates the radical separation of state and religion, a girls' theatre group in Kabul, and Malacca who lives as a boy to earn a living for her family.
