In urban Pakistan, queer individuals manage personal conflicts and the pressures of society. Drag performer Kami lives openly with his boyfriend. Jenny, a trans student, just underwent surgery. Meanwhile, Neeli has been instrumental in changing Pakistan’s constitution to recognize the third gender.
Tackling the stigma and taboos related to sexuality head-on, Hide and Seek presents an honest and emotional portrayal of complex gender struggles in contemporary Pakistan. A moving and compelling study of societal power structures and the courage that enables people to rise beyond them.
