Description

“We come to this world good. Tum mera beta ho. I bring you here. Likhen, you choose—you choose to stay good. If you want.”

For years, Zaya has delicately balanced his relationship with his Muslim faith and queer identity by keeping his genderqueer lover and manipulative mother apart. But when his mother ends up in the hospital on the same day his partner is leaving for pilgrimage, Zaya’s worlds come crashing in on each other, opening a space for traumatic memories to resurface.

Acha Bacha boldly explores the intersections between queerness, gender identity, and Islamic culture in the Pakistani diaspora. It’s about the way we love, the way we are loved, and what it takes to truly accept love.
