Dadi and her friends share a common history: of being Partition refugees who came to India after the state of Pakistan was created and eventually settled in the capital, Delhi. The film looks at the experiences of ordinary women who lived through the violence, uncertainty and trauma of leaving their homeland (mulk) to enter a new country in 1947. How does history play out on ordinary lives, where do households and properties merge?

Collaboration: Indian Institute for Human Settlements; and Goethe Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan
