The Ground Beneath Their Feet 

A documentary about the strength of women in the muslim world

“The Ground Beneath Their Feet” tells the story of two young women who are paralyzed when a devastating earthquake strikes the north of Pakistan. Ruqiya and Khalida's disability leaves them struggling to create a new identity for themselves once their cultural value as wives and homemakers is lost. 

This documentary shows the evolution of their attitudes, bodies, and futures. We follow their journey over the course of fives years as they struggle with their physical and emotional recovery and reexamine what it means to be a woman in the Muslim world.
