In the film, I am trying to portray the pain, struggle, suffering, resilience and the indomitable spirit of Kashmiri Half-widows and their children. Half Widows are women whose husbands have disappeared and their death is not ascertained in Kashmir. These half-widows and their children live an isolated social life and face a lot of harassment, sexual exploitation and humiliation. Remaining true to reality, "Widow of Silence" expresses the women's conditions in one corner of the world, away from the spot light.
