Muslim Across the World • Documentary, Travel
The film explores the rural border areas of Poonch, Surankote, Loran and Mandi, stretching through the beautiful and magnificent mountain ranges of Pir Panjal.

The short documentary takes you on a journey through the shoes of a traveller for a pure and enriched realization about the people living there, their nomadic lives, politics, culture and a region of neglected beauty of Jammu & Kashmir.
