The film shows the secret, yet open lives of a group of Pakistani sexual minorities, raising questions about transgender activism, religion, underground gay life, social acceptance and collective familial customs of transgenders in urban Pakistan.
Taking 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.
