Sanam Saeed’s short film is inspired by the idea of rape incident in Lahore

A woman was raped in front of her children by two unidentified men on the Lahore-Sialkot motorway on September 9. The case rattled the country and reignited the debate on whether capital punishment should be fixed for rapists or not.

A new short film titled Ab Buss, starring Sanam Saeed in the lead role is set to be released on the incident. Being aired on Pakistani web-series platform, See Prime, the short revolves around an average suburban woman who is taking extreme measures as she prepares herself for a trip.

Saeed’s character Maya, within the first few moments, receives a phone call following which she is seen arming herself with a taser and a gun, all the while adopting military-esque attire. To some, it may seem that this is a classic revenge story, with the Cake star just being informed of the whereabouts of someone who may have wronged her once. However, this could not be further from the truth.

It turns out that Maya is taking precautionary measures instead. When her husband suddenly walks in on Maya, it is revealed that her father suffered a heart attack and she has to travel all the way along with her young daughter.
