Lost in Terror

Lost in Terror


Set in the backdrop of the uprising against the
armed forces in Kashmir in the late 1980s, Lost in Terror
is the tale of a young, educated, career-conscious woman
who finds herself sucked into a maelstrom of death and
destruction. She also cherishes the dream of Azadi and plays
strong to face the wrath of the security forces. But when she
uncovers her husband's discreet links with gunmen who have
become obsessed with the dream of Azadi at the expense of
the family's security, she becomes fragile and begins to lose
her hold on her home, her relationships and Azadi itself.

When her dreams for a perfect family and a thriving
career are turned upside down and her life comes to
a standstill, fate offers her a leap of faith-but will she take it?
