ONE DAY BEFORE BEING SOLD
BY GAYATRI KUMAR
On her 15th birthday, Rihana discovers her father plans to sell her to the Taliban, leaving her and her loved ones to make the most of an unimaginable final 24 hours together.
15-year-old Rihana has only 24 hours before she's sold to the Taliban at the hands of her father.
When 15-year-old Rihana discovers her father's plans to sell her to the Taliban the next morning, the entire family's strength is put to test. This film is about those remaining 24 hours and how a young girl in Afghanistan prepares for her own atrocity.
Rihana is the loving daughter and caring sister who could never imagine what her father would put her through.
Rihana is like the shining star of the family. You know that sibling you look up to? The one who influences you at a deep level? That’s Rihana. Though her mom plays a big role in raising her siblings, Rihana is like a second mother, especially with the youngest Habib. Everyone she knows calls her "doctor" because she's so sincere about her studies. Even when the neighboring bombings keep the village's boys at home, Rihana still walks to school. Why? "Because I can," Rihana says.
