I Hid My VoiceBook - 2016
This is the story, based on fact, of a boy who couldn't speak until the age of seven. Now twenty, he describes the events of his life. Four-year-old Shahaab had not started talking and is ridiculed by others who call him dumb. In his innocent and deeply hurt child's mind, his world turns harsh, full of anger and insult. No one in the family can understand Shahaab's wild behaviour except his maternal grandmother, who seems to possess the understanding and the kindness he so desperately craves. Their growing bond leads to a deep friendship in which Shahaab is able to experience some happiness and finally find his voice.
