In Flames Overview

Mariam lives with her younger brother and their mother, Fariha, in a tiny apartment in Karachi. When Mariamís maternal grandfather passes, his brother tries to manipulate them into signing over their apartment to him, a common occurrence in Pakistan, where womenís property rights are fragile. Mariamís mother, grieving and isolated, is easy to influence.

Mariam, distraught by her motherís foolishness, finds solace in a secret romance with a fellow student, Asad. When their relationship takes an unexpected turn, Mariam becomes consumed by nightmares. Meanwhile, her mother, caught between her coercive Uncle and a murky legal system, is oblivious to her daughterís deteriorating mental state. Mariamís nightmares begin to bleed into reality. Mother and daughter must come together if they hope to overcome the real and phantasmal forces that threaten to engulf them.
