Norsk filminstitutt

16 år gamle Nisha lever et dobbeltliv. Hjemme med familien er hun en pakistansk datter, mens ute med venner er hun en vanlig norsk ungdomsjente. Når faren tar henne på fersken med kjæresten kolliderer hennes to verdener brutalt. 

For å sette et eksempel bestemmer foreldrene seg for å kidnappe Nisha og plassere henne hos slektninger i Pakistan. Her, i et land hun aldri har vært før, må Nisha tilpasse seg foreldrenes kultur. 

Hva vil folk si er et rørende og intenst drama om det vanskelige forholdet mellom en far og en datter. Det er fortellingen om en ung jente som må finne sin egen vei. Nisha spilles av 18 år gamle Maria Mozhdah som gjør sin første store filmrolle. Faren spilles av Adil Hussain som har spilt i en lang rekke indiske og internasjonale filmer, blant annet Life of Pi.
