"The film... revolves around a London-based character who falls in love with a girl from Peshawar through the internet and travels there only to discover that it was a mere trap to kidnap him," the film´s director Irshu Bangash told AFP.

Filming took place in Peshawar, as well as in the UK and Canada. The movie will be released in English, Dutch, Urdu and Pashto, which the language spoken by the Pashtun tribal people living in the mountainous border areas between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Peshawar, once the cradle of Pashtun cinema, has long suffered in Pakistan´s war on militancy.

As security improves cinema is seeing a renaissance.
