Navai added that based on the evidence, when the Taliban members see attractive and beautiful girls in the city and want to marry them, they first go to propose, if they hear a rejection, they beat the girls’ families, kidnap the girls and forcibly marry them.
In a part of his interview, she said that a large number of girls and women were arrested for violating moral laws and were forced to marry a member of the Taliban in prison.
“What was happening to women in the territory they occupied was terrifying. I wanted to make a documentary almost as a warning. “Listen, everybody, this is what’s happening.”
This documentary was filmed in the provinces of Afghanistan and areas under the control of the Taliban; Especially in places where the oppression of women has been more severe. But she praises the struggle of women against the restrictions of the Taliban and says that being a woman in the patriarchal society of Afghanistan is considered a privilege.
